Welp... I'm convinced.  You guys convinced me.  When the time comes I think I'll bite the bullet and buy a rotisserie.  Only problems is, I don't have a garage. lol  3/4" plywood on grass and a car tent work?

You'll love it once you start to use it.

I made my own rotisserie. Wich is not nearly as nice as the one shown here but it does the trick.
I based mine on the drawing from : http://www.69hemi.com/

NOS is nice, turbo's are neat, but when it comes to Mopars, there's no need to cheat...

I was working on the bottom of the car yesterday and found a bunch of rust around and under the E brake cable bracket.  No matter what I did I couldn't get the rust out so I built a little dam out of plumbers putty and poured phosphoric acid into the dam.   Bubble and foam....when I got no more foam a rinse and it looked good but who knows what really lurks between the parts??  Without the twirler, this would have been impossible.

Where did you get the plans to build your rotisserie? I thought about building one but don't know where to start.

I had several choices on how to get mine, ended up buying just because it was the lazy way.   There are several plans on the internet and a DIY kit on several of the vendor sites (gears, wheels, jacks, etc along with plans.)  I had considered going to the local high school welding shop and asking them to build it ( they like that sort of thing as project for students. )
Just as a note to anyone interested in a good rotisserie, we supply a quality unit for less than $1000 plus shipping.  Ours has all the bells and whistles to make it work as good as the more expensive ones.  And it comes powder coated from the factory!  Just saying.  In fact a steel fabricator customer of mine recently stated he couldn't build a unit for the price we sell it for. PM me for details.

Yessir!.....built it for about $300-400 a couple three years ago. Still works like a champ. I really didn't want to invest $1500 or more on one since I will not be doing another resto of this caliber ever....EVER!

Got a new toy last week and have been spending my time setting it up.   I tried to find a used rotisserie but didn't get any bites so ended up buying one from Dereck Weaver  (Dallas, TX.)

Came in a huge box, weighed 580 lbs.  Only way to get it into the garage was to have the freight Co. load it into the back of my pickup and then unbox while it was still in the bed.

Seems like a nice setup to a newbe like me.    Came with parts that other people offer as option.  Included where a set of casters,  2 hydraulic cylinders to lift the car and a set of adapters for attaching to the car.   It also included a gear operated rotating unit that was not included in the description.  What it didn't include was a set of useful instructions on how to put it together.

Pic #1 shows it as it arrived.

After getting it put together I had to figure out how to mount the car.  Front was pretty easy, just drilled tow sets of holes in the front adapter arms, buy some 3" x 1/2" bolts and bolt it up to the front bumper mounting bracket holes.  Pic #2.

The rear was a little harder.  I ended up modifing the adapters that came with the unit.  Pic #3 shows what happened.  On the left is the part I adapted as it came originally.  I cut it to a narrow piece (right) so that it would fit against the bumper mounting holes on the back of the charger.   Then got a piece of 3/16" stock from Lowe's (center) and drilled holes to match the bumper mounting holes.  Welded the stock to the adapter and done!

Pic #4 shows the car up and tilted!!  Much easier to get to the bottom now and even to get into the trunk!
