    Default How to mount an 11BL on a Rotisserie.

    I am in the middle of a restoration of an 11BL and to make life a little easier I bought a Rotisserie to make work underneath the car simpler.
    Mounting the front of the car is a no brainer but mounting the back is where Iím having the problem. I donít want to damage to car or leave great tell tale holes.
    Advice, particularly in the form of pictures, would be greatly appreciated.

    Don't you just remove its head, gut it and stick a big long pole up its bum?

    I suppose the bumper mounting points could be the first thought for many cars, but on your 11BL they may have rusted out at the back and the front bumper extensions are only light gauge sheet. You may need to make up a bracket to run forward to where the rear beam bolts up at the back of the sill. If that's rusty, then you may have to think of some other way to support that corner when you repair it. If the wheelarches are OK and can support the weight, then maybe the shock absorber mountings could be useful.

    There are quite a few versions on youtube that would give a few ideas how to mount your car, from personal experience, to avoid accidents, strength and rigidity is important and so if estimating the centre of gravity. If the COG is too far out you will have to wrestle with the weight of the car to rotate it, but if you get it correct it's quite easy and safe.

    Mate fabricated one and had a handbrake on it. He was into Mazda's and it used a Capella rear drum, lever and factory cable (neatly coiled and restrained). "At least it keeps some of the spares in plain sight and working for an honest living."

    Thanks to those who took an interest, especially jaahn for the photos forwarded by PM. I will post photos when I do eventually mount it.
