Building a Jig to put my car on I need some help.

Hi,

I am building a Jig to set my car on to start my sheetmetal work. Can anyone help me out with dimensions. I have seen a few Jigs built on here. Where is the best place to start. Help me out guys.

I am also interested in doing this. My car is going to need some serious tlc before I can even think about putting up on a rotisserie. I have some ideas for making something modular. Basically I want to start with just a basic platform built up from 2x4x0.188 rectangle tube. From that I was thinking about making adjustable extensions for the front and back. They'd be removable and the whole thing would break down into something that could be leaned up against a wall or otherwise "put away" when not in use.

Would people be interested in a collaborative design?

being Mopar folks though I figure we can do better  :bigsmile:

Actually, this one (towards to bottom) looks pretty good for a start.

My question about these is where is the best contact point?
