Just wondering if anyone out there has a wheel dolly set that bolts to the hull
flanges when the suspention is off the car. I'd like to rent or buy and set.

PS... Were back up to 8 above today!

They are very easy to make. Get either 4 hard rubber type castors
with a load rating of about 400# each (or 8 with 200# each).
Fabricate a triangle bracket from 1/4" angle iron. position such
that at least 3 bolts are used for mounting to the hull. Add the
castor(s) to the bottom of the bracket. Don't make them too long so
as not to stress them. Just long enough to position the hull off the
ground. Another cheaper method I used to move the empty hull (less
drive train) is 2 square mover's dollies underneath.
