Anyone out there put a Corvair Van on a auto rotisserie and if so was the bumper mounts sufficient enough alone? Thanks Lyn

If you remove the doors, you can install braces to keep the openings square.

I would assume people do that with their convertibles with the doors removed.

This is not exactly what you ask but I've had 2 late model coupes on my rotesserie and mounted both on extended arms back to where the front susspinsion mounts to body. Used 2 }stacked} 2x2 square tubing to clear the lower valance. On the rear I mounted to where the rear engine mount bolts to. The only problem I encountered was when I loaded Car on rotesserie onto a trailer to have some media blast work done. I had to put a steel saw horse under the arms between the mounting bolts so there was no flex/bouncing. This worked great for me . Maybe this helps, or maybe just creates more questions.

Looks like the pictures at the Corvairkid's page shows Larry Palazzo's Rampside mounted on a rotisserie using the bumper mount positions.

It seems that is the way that D.W. did it also, but that has been a few years, and I can not be sure.
