James: No rust, just some 'suprises'..... which is why it is getting the name 'Blues Clues'... keep getting a new clue around every corner... haha!

Threadjack alert...

I can't get on AIM at the office because of firewall rules out of my control. So I'll be calling you tomorrow. I know when I want to come down there. Just need to see if it works for you. I can't wait!

I remember Pauls 1st gen post about him making a rotisserie for his restoration project. Did you make that unit yourself? I've wanted to make a setup like this for my SE restoration for a very long time. Where would one purchase the components to make one?

Charlie: Wait until you see the rest of the project... haha! You'll have even more to out-do ;)

stickershop: Yea, i rmember talking with Paul a while back while he was building it about how to go about building it... it really came out great though back in the day. As for where to buy, there are a lot of companies that make the rotisseries, and i would DEFINTELY at this point suggest buying rather than building if you don't know what yer doing... Components are easy though... just a bunch of steel if various shapes and sizes, and then the ability to build it from there ;)

shadow: ummm.... juuust a bit more involved than that, but ok. By the way, make sure if you use engine stands, that you either get one that isn't angled to support a motor, or you weld it up angled so that your pivot points are in-line with each other, or else it could bind on you.

As for other info on the build? I happened to start another thread about it :)
