I put up some dimensions of the 3 different ones i have in use currently at

just an idea  maybe worth putting the height on your roof beams in the garage so people know the minimum height required with the  shotest pivot height spit

 

 

dont know whats happened there i cant see the reply  ,,,,,,  but  would it be an idea to add the height on you garage roof/beams so people know the minimim height can get away with  on the lowestheight pivot  spit ..... hope that makes sense

They are quite deceptive, manta lifted is about 4ft of the ground at centre of front nose cone, car can do a full rotate, but it is tight,

How im ever gonna get it down on my own!

Thanks David,

I never thought to search “rotisserie” 🤦

I’ve measured up my garage now and I don’t actually have enough space - I’ll have to come up with another plan.

How high is your garage roof beams? you might be able to make one that lets you turn it onto its side but not fully over. Or make one on wheels and pul it outside to rotate then push back in upside down maybe?

My garage that the first/lowest one was used in has 5'11" beams.

But the pivot point of that one wasn't right as the shell was top heavy and didn't rotate easily. The pivot point wants to be offset from the mounting bar (like the 2nd jig i made) by about 3 or 4 inches from memory. So i think you could just about get it around in a 6'6" space, but you would need to get the pivot point spot on to stop it hitting the floor/roof.

i beleive the lean to i knocked up is 6.6 at the lowest   i have a spit here its a universal one just make a mounting bar to suit what your mounting it to  but it has had a mk2 escort on it and theres quite a bit of spread in the feet so can drop it quite a bit just by spreading the legs further out i didnt build it i bought of a mate for 50 quid i think but itnow needs de rusting painting
