Amphicar Rotisserie

Craig, I will send you photo's of the rotisserie I built to roll my
car. We used inside connections so as to leave access to the outer
body. This entails a sort of "gooseneck" to get you to the mounting
points and still allow the car to be raised high enough to roll. We
started will two Harbor Freight engine stands. It really was a lot of
work. Have you or anyone else heard of those inflatable bags ( almost
like bean bags) that can do the same job for a lot less hassle?

Allan, there are many of us that would like to see those photo's.
Maybe you could post them to the website.
If not, could you please email them to me also.
I have built a few stands that roll wings, some of them 40 ft. but I would like
to see
if you have any ideas that I might have missed.
Thanks in advance,
DouglasK

Ya Allen I would like to see those pictures. I would assume the hardest part of
a rotisserie style is figuring the hight of the pivit points in relation the
car.
You would want to find the center of gravit so the car could be rotated with out
worrys of it flipping up side down too fast. Does anyone have a patern for the
hull axle mounting points?

Somewhere, there are some pictures of a non-rotisserie Amphi frame. It looks
more like a roll cage, and the pix shows the Amphi rolled about 135 degrees.
This welded frame bolts onto the axle holes, and allows you to just push the
Amphi over onto its side and then continue to roll it as far as needed, all the
way around to right-side up again. Actually, I question the value of taking the
roll beyond about 135 degrees. There might be some times when a full 180 degrees
of roll might be desired, but most any bottom work can be done with the Amphi at
an angle. And, if you want to do the other side, you can bolt the frame on from
the opposite side and roll the Amphi to its opposite side.

I think your thinking of Dave the Waves web site. I found it last night. He has
a roll cage type deal that mounts to the axle flange body points. It also looks
like a good stand with the roll cage removed.
