Thumbup INCREDIBLE Tip-over Jig

Finished building my tip-over jig last night and gave the car its first spin.



In case anyone's interested, here's a video of the first tip and the build process.

So far so good!

Thanks. Yeah this one only cost me about $80 and that is using all new materials.

It will never take the place of a metal one, but it has one big advantage: when I'm done, I can take the jigs off and throw them up in the rafters.

I think I might go ahead and build one for my car. I've been contemplating building a rotisserie, but all I really need one for is to seam seal and paint the bottom of the car and I hate the idea of spending $7-800 for maybe a weeks worth of use. Thanks for the video and pictures.

You're welcome. It sounds to me like this would be a really good solution for your situation.

maybe add a extended leg by curved piece ? it would act as a stop , keeping from bashing the roof against floor .

I wouldn't worry about that "It's just a Coupe".........



I'm actually a coupe lover,but don't tell anybody. That's a cool idea. Good luck with the project.

Actually there is a stop, its attached to the roof and sticks out the driver's side window. The roof doesn't come in contact with the floor, the entire car is off the ground, only the two wooden arches and the wooden stop make contact with the floor.

Here's a picture looking into the cabin of the car from where the gas tank sits. You can see the wood sticking out the window, thats the part that makes contact with the floor. You can also see the roof is sitting several inches off the floor.

Looks like you used a chain hoist to lift it onto its side?
Could a couple guys do it? Or do you need a hoist?
