    You either do it on a hoist and get burnt, or put it on a car rotisserie

    ask jonny rochester on here

    his shell is completely stripped and he just rolled the car onto its side with old car tyres underneith it to prevent panel damage...

    or 2 modified engine stands and u should be able to make them into a rotissary... maybe

    Yes I did.

    First I started with a completely stipped shell with no front fenders, no glass, sitting on 4 jack stands.

    I put tyres down, lowered one side off the jack stands, down onto tyres with a jack.

    Then it takes the effort of only 1 person to roll it onto its side, but use alot of people just in case. It sits fairly balanced on its side. But I did it close to a wall so I could tie it off with rope just in case.

    I pretty much did the same thing. Except I put some chunks of foam ,nice firm stuff, on the tires for some extra insurance . I used four ropes as well not just one to hold it up.
