    Hi all Have hed a few questions on my rotisserie so I have put together a few details

    Material List

    75 x 75 x 3mm (i bought 2 lenghts and had this list pre cut)
    8 x 1100
    2 x 500
    1 x 720
    1 x 900
    2x 400
    1 x 1000

    50 x 100 6mm angle x 500 (rear bumper)
    10mm plate (front bumper)

    Pipe is 3mm bore (i got lucky and got this from mate)

    I took this idea of the net and re scaled it but because I was unsure of how balanced it would be I made my bumper mounts adjustable.I would not bother next time and have allowed less 30mm on the pic THIS IS THE 490 MEASUREMENT which is centre to centre

    The 1130 is floor to centre and my garage truss is 2300 from ground If i had more height I would make this higher

    The 1200 came from offcuts and I decided to go wider on the bottom

    COST doing it myself $300

    I hope this helps

    I read this post a week or so ago and I think your design is very clever... I'm just having trouble figuring out where you put the chickens? ;)

    How much was the steel per length?

    did it cost you more because you had to have it cut?

    I think there was a charge for cutting like $1 per cut BUT this stuff is way heavy and is much easier to handle in smaller lenghts

    What you save buying a whole lenght out ways the cost of cutting

    I was going to buy two whole lengths and cut it my self. I can borrow a ute with Pipe carriers that is used to carry 9m irrigation pipes so it should handle the RHS alright. Might do it this weekend.

    Here's another Design

    I built this rotisserie so I can put the splitty on and off myself. It is a different design to any I have seen before and it works well for the Single cab because of the low C of G but I'm sure it would work for a bus. Anyway here are some pictures.

    57 split thats a fine peice of craftmens ship. I still like the other better because it looks easier to build. And less materials. Thereby making it cheaper which means more money for the resto!

    I built it like that so I can fit it myself. All you have to do is bolt it on the front and rear, lift it up with a trolley jack, push under the rollers and let it down. I made it easy to move as well so I can take it to the sandblasters when the time comes. As for the VW logo, I'll see what can do.
