Coad built his own messer now?

From the ebay ad: This car has an early 1970's VW Beetle chassis (street legal), and a professionally built, 95 horsepower, 4 cylinder air-cooled engine with twin carburetors.

Roll around engine stand

Roll around engine stand
coW
This is one of those engine stands that is supposed to bolt to a work desk. Instead, I built a cart out of some 2x6 lumber and attached the stand to it. It has caster wheels so it can roll around (important if you have a shop where you also have to do other things like woodworking, home maintenance, etc)
The stand also has a floor, so it catches pieces that drop. It also holds the parts easily.

Body jack points added

Body jack points added
coW
This picture shows the body hovering over the cart that normally holds the body. The body jackpoints allow me to easily hover the hody at pretty much any distance from the pan. Doing this at the moment, because I've fixed the frame head and now want to replace the floors. After the pan is all ok, the heater channels and some body panels will need to be replaced.

I added these body jack points. They are made out of 11Gauge steel, bent over into a box and welded - these things are strong.
Using these things, I can very easily lower the body onto the pan for fitting things, etc.

Body lift detail

Body lift detail
coW
As you can see, my body lift consists of some pretty simple construction: The vertical member is allowed to slide up and down and is being held by a long threaded rod. The threaded rod has a nut welded to the top. The bottom threads through another nut that is welded to a plate (can't see it in this picture). This plate is lagged to the vertical member.

A couple of modifications have been made since this picture was taken: I put wheels on it so the whole thing can roll around and out of the way. I also put a diagonal brace from the top horizontal member to the vertical member to stop wrecking. A small piece of 2x4 was nailed to the moving member so that it is not allowed to move sideways.

It works quite well.

As you can see, the channels are pretty much gone. This baby will need some serious work.

Body hovering - side view
coW
By turning the lead screws on my jig, the body slowly rises up over and hovers over the pan.
I figure that this fixture will come in handy later on, when I do the heater channels as everything has to be carefully aligned before final welding.

We have body lift off
coW
This is my 72. Using these lifts, it allows me take the body off by myself in minutes, lifting one side at a time. I put the frame on dollies so it could slide from under the body.

The whole thing is now sitting in the garage. The body sits on a large dolly. The frame is stripped and is sitting on a roll around table.
