How to build a wood body dolly?
Does anyone have the plans to build a wood body dolly for a C-2? I like the ones you can buy for $700 ($825 shipped) but, money may be saved to build my own.
I have built a wood dolly and I just used the GM chassis blueprint for my measurements. If you want I can draw something and e-mail or fax it to you.
Someone out there may have a better system than what I used. This was cheap and worked OK. Do you have to roll it around on grass or gravel, or will it only be on concrete? Uneven ground may warrant a stronger set up to help the body from flexing
Tom. I suspect I will only be on hard surfaces. I have to get it up on a trailer to be blasted (remove paint), then back to a garage for painting. The main section under the bird cage will not be tough to make, it's the front end that may be a trick to support. Thanks, Kurt
Noland Adams Body Lift Workbook is available in the Store at www.NCRS.org.
$9.00 is what I paid. It includes plans and a material list for building a wooden dolly.
Dave, That looks easy to make... I wish I could read all the measurements. Could you email it to me??? Please and Thank you.. Kurt firstname.lastname@example.org
I would like to have a copy of those measurements too. My email address is
