Hey guys,

I'm getting ready to pull the body on my 66ss project and I need to build a base to put it on. I remember seeing one that someone built on one of the private web pages here, but I can't seem to find it.

Does anybody know off hand the specs for something like this or can point me to the right place.

Thanks

Corey,
The atricle you are referring to is in the Tech Reference portion. Look under Reference Links. It will take you to the following web page: http://www.midlink.com/mjpell/CarRotisserie.htm
Pleae take note of Wes' notes on the reference page.
Hope this helps you,

Fred

Thanks for the info Fred, but I'm not looking for a rotisserie, just a base to put the body. I saw one that was made from wood (2 x 4 and 4 x 4's) on someones website. I know it wouldn't be too hard to make, I just wanted to know if anybody had the exact specs.

Thanks

Corey

Corey-
Were you thinking of Jeff K's body page? He has some wood planks holding the shell of his 72. Link: http://www.athenet.net/~chevelle/body.html
BTW-Looking at your page the 71 looks like a pretty clean car! Also is that a late model Impala in the background? Do you think you could post a couple of pics of it on your page? My mom's considering selling her 67' 454 tubbed Camaro for a 96 SS so...I'm looking for pics. Thanks.

I made dolly's (four of them) with 2by10 board's cut into square's, which i then nailed together. I then ran down to my local Home Depot and purchased some heavy duty caster's and screwed those on the bottom. After lifting the body of my 70 SS 396 off the frame, I placed the four dolly's at each corner,lowered the car down, and i was able to move the body easily around my garage. I also had a flat bed tow truck pull the body onto it's bed (using just the dolly's) when i brought the car to the body shop for paint. All in all, the dolly's cost less than a $100 to make and i still have them for any future project's.
