On it's side.
Time to start working on the underside.
i hope you emptied the axle housing
Keep going, this one will turn out being nicer than the green one!
and the fun continues.....
That's awesome. How far are you going with the under side, scrape & paint, undercoat, sandblast etc.? How much stress does that put on the leaf springs & shackle bushings?
Why not completely upside down? Then you can sit on the bottom and work down between your feet, and any painting you do will settle down, and not run.
Wow, Dave you scared me for minute there! I had visions of your '73 green Grabber upside down in an accident!! This is MUCH better!!
where did you get the pivots they look very interesting. How much effort to turn it that way?
Paint doesn't run when you do it properly. I cleaned pretty much the whole underside tonight, with scotchbrite, it still has most of its original paint.
Makes a world of difference when you can sit on a stool and work on the underside of your car - nothing falls in your eyes
i saw this scrolling through the section and was like 'woah woah woah' lol but glad to see its a controlled roll! and thats real convenient!
I have seen those before, just can't remember where.
Looks really good, Dave! What did you use to lift the opposite side of the car?
Just my engine hoist, once it gets about half way, you can just push it, the rest of the way.
