The one's on top I don't recall seeing.

I did have the ones on the bottom.

I made my own.

Ordered it!  :woo:

So far the best price I've found on a complete rotisserie, $1114 including F/R mounting adapters and lift truck residential delivery.

My custom built Low Budget Dash Stand.

Ordered a replacement Dash Frame from Wildcat Mopars to replace this one. This one is too rusted out on the bottom for me to use.
Someone that knows how to weld could do some rust repair. If I cant sell it as is I may try to repair it and sell it later. Lots of other stuff to keep me busy for a while though.

Made some more progress on the 69 FB. Put the rotisserie together. Today we will put up a new 18' x 20' portable car port over the top of it and should have all of the suspension off and the car twirling. Then we can start removing the undercoating. Won't have to do it laying on our backs under it.  :working:

Are you goring to re-use your lower control arms, or go with an entirely new front suspension?  I am in need of A-body lower control arms, without the sway bar brackets.  Can't wait to see how your project turns out!

Thanks for the encouragement Mike. We didn't get as far as I wanted but the carport is up and the car on the rotisserie.
At least we will be out of the rain. 

EB3, How soon would you need them? Probably won't reuse any of the existing front suspension parts.

Randy,
It will be a while yet so no rush, when ever you are finished with them.  I am compiling parts at this point for my next project.  PM me when you are ready! Thanks!

Little by little...  :working:

Nice work. It will be tedious and frustrating at times, but stay in there and keep forging ahead. I have always tried to do at least 1 thing a day regardless of how small. Even if it is sorting parts or cleaning something, it all counts and have to be done. It can be very easy to lose your way, become disenchanted with the project or even lose interest, however if you just keep plugging away it will come together. As we discussed previously, try and stay on track with the project and don't let things drag you down rabbit holes that eat time and money; keep sight of the project.

Sound advice Mike!
As we progress I hope to have Dylan do more on his own. This summer will be a great learning experience for us both.
He has already learned about one thing we all know well if you work on cars very much... bleeding!  :working:
