    There are companies that make them. I would imagine they are expensive. Didn't they use one on "TRUCKS" when they were building project Crazy Horse?

    Actually I found the body was easy to coat underneath (once the chassis was rolled out).

    When you have the frame dissassembled, you can flip it easily to get around all the difficult to reach spots. I think a rotisserie is an unnecessary luxury...

    He's talking about a stand to which the front and rear of the tub can be affixed so that it can spin on an axis. This would allow you to just push it a little and spin it over so that you can coat the underside of the tub. It is similar in theory to a chicken rotisserie, or one of those garbage cans with the dome tops that have the flap that spins around.

    If you are still interested I will try to dig up the old Hot Rod that they used one on a Biscain. You could use that as a cheat to fab one up. But I would hesitate to put the tub on one because I would be afraid of it folding in the middle. I am interested to find out if I'm correct or not because I would like to do the same thing when I do a frame off on mine. But that will be a while as I need to build a house first.

    stroked yes im still interested. my tub had very little rust which i replaced while it was on the frame. so im hoping that it is pretty stable. i plan on welding braces in the door opening. this may seem like overkill but this truck was in good shape and would like for it to be around for a lot longer. thanks for the replys.

    I found the article where they separate the body from the frame in the July 2001 issue. The rest of the story in the August 2001 issue I think but I can't find that one. You can check with www.hotrod.com to find the rest of the story. I need your e-mail addres so I can send you a scan of the article.

    A luxury yes, but worth it. Helped a friend with one restore a Mustang. He had castor wheels on it too. Got it out of the way when needed. I'd go for it...
