Assembling the AutoTwirler.

The AutoTwirler (car rotisserie) arrived (rusty). There’s not much to assembly…

 

You get two of these ends. Three wheels for each. The wheels are on plates that slot into a seat, then a single bolt holds them in.

 

These three bars are to tie the two ends together. They come packaged inside the swinging t-bars.

 

Now it’s assembled I can see that I’m gonna have to either fabricate or buy a pair of brackets that will mount the back end of the car. For the cost of thick box section around here (and to say my welder wouldn’t do brilliantly with 6-8mm steel is being generous), I decided to buy some. I’ll be ordering them from Eastwood (in America) soon, so I have a fair wait till they arrive. The front is easy enough it just sits on the ‘prongs’ and bolts through them into the firewalls subframe mounts.

I found some killer rotissorie plans (free) on the www. I figure it will be great practice before attempting to weld body panels etc…!
