Default Chevelle Body Dolly

Anyone have plans or photos of a homemade dolly to move the body around when its off the frame. I want to be able to put the body on a dolly but high enough where I can roll the frame underneath it like in a single car garage, and when I need just the frame I can roll it out without bothering the body.

Here was mine that I built a few years ago. It was wide enough to slide the frame out from underneath and high enough to fit in the garage and allow me to paint it underneath. Unfortunately, I don't have the plans, but you can probably see how it was put together.

Here's what I did. I had the body resting on 3" square tube that was wide enough to either roll the body cart under, or roll the frame with wheels and tires under. While the frame was out getting e-coated, I would pull the body out of the garage for bead blasting and painting underneath. I put jack stands under the 3" when i was done with all the paint work on the bottom, and cut the cart back into pieces. I rolled the frame in and out from under the body as needed using furniture dollies until I had the suspension built and tires back on the ground. I floor jacked it up for bolting when done. Worked out great. Used 2" and 1" tubing for the cart and some Harbor Freight wheels.

I didn't have a welder or any materials and built one out of some lumber that I had.
