So do you only have one bolt per side on the front there or am I not seeing another per side?

Rear looks easy enough. 

Do you have any drop down for the center of gravity?

Shawge, those are some pretty cool setups.  I got a few ideas from that. 

Thanks

You can bet there are two bolts per side on the front.  You just cannot see the second one due to the square tubing.  They are not in-line with the front one being higher.  PK

You might want to consider mounting the rear of the car to the rotisserie using the rear shackle mounts.  It's much easier to paint the car (top or bottom) when you mount it like that.
The funniest thing about this particular signature is that by the time you realize it doesn't say anything it's to late to stop reading it.

I did use the two bumper bolts in the front,yea it barely shows the top bolt in the pic,

and the center of gravity was pretty balanced with the current mounting points,

make sure you use the valance to set up your rear brackets so there wont be any interference so you can trial fit everything, :2thumbs:

Put the car on a dolly to trial and fit body panels, not a rotisserie.  There is a lot of flex when these cars are on the rotisserie.

My plan is to put the car back down on the tires,

 and then fit the panels,( both quarters and tail light section,trunk floor)

 then after everything is secure I will put it back on the spit and weld the hard to get areas,

yea I agree way t o much flex to cut and weld on the spit

,but after I get it back on the spit I dont want the rear brackets in the way as I intend on keeping the valance on once welding is done :2thumbs:
