Homemade rotisserie

PostPost by: Vic » Sat Aug 23, 2014 3:34 pm

Just completed my rotisserie last weekend. Very well balanced (for a series 2). I have a total of four cars I'm putting 26R fenders (wings) on. Three are mine and the fourth is for the owner of a project I sold. Previously (over the last 20 years) I've done three 26R conversions without a rotisserie so this should make it so much easier. I can also mock-up suspension/wheels for proper alignment of new fenders. The rusty chassis is just for the rotisserie/mock-up, I have new TTR chassis' for the project(s).

Looks good, I'm planning on making one for my MK1 escort restoration. I should have done this when I was restoring my elan.
They are expensive to buy and the ones that are availiable seem more suited for large amercan cars.

I'm sure it cost much less than the $1000+ being asked on e-bay
