    It's a good idea.

    However I'm not sure I'd trust my life to a piece of checked out 4 X 2 pine as the prop!

    I'd like see a piece of pipe or a Piece of hardwood and some way of stopping the end on the ground slipping.

    Agree, and with a car that rusted I'd prefer all panels, interior, and motor removed. . .

    i guess you have to drain all the oil and water and LHM first.... no substitute for a hoist......not much use for a quick fix-up of something underneath really....

    That system has been around for a long time. It bolts to the wheel hubs, so it will hold on firmly as long as the suspension is attached. In a DS, if the box between the rear wheels is nicely rotted, mounting the car that way might not be the smartest idea though.

    Is that his last update with the last picture showing the big hole adjacent to the petrol tank he's about to patch?

    I don't think a rotisserie would ever be considered a substitute for a hoist, a totally different application. For welding I would much rather work vertically than under a hoist likewise cutting away rust or even spraying body protection.

    The beauty of this is it is easily portable, compact when stored and would suit a small workspace (low ceiling).

    None of the above thanks, that contraption looks like a widow maker to me.

    Maybe for most cars, but with a Dee, we generally remove all suspension parts and all panels for structural repair.

    Anything that attaches to wheel studs is pretty useless.

    Better to make your own frame that bolts to key mounting points of the car structure.... like door hinge points, front and rear wing mount pins etc.

    Surely, if you can weld your car, you can weld up a rolling frame ?

    I like the concept, the car can be virtually rolled in it's own space - some of us are quite restricted in this area. With a few modifications it could be made quite safe for rolling a stripped D with mounts as you suggest.



    The German version badabec posted a link to is far more structural than the Heath Robinson version used in my original post.

    I used to see these advertised in Classic & Sportscar magazine twenty years ago. They've been around for a while and many people use them in the UK quite successfully - they featured in a few reader's restoration photos, from memory.
