Travellers tale

Postby Tinman » Thu Jun 14, 2018 7:24 pm

Well thought I should make a start on the documenting of my traveller I have had just less than a month. The car had been restored in 1999 but then left to rot again. Has had some welding done in the past but sills, rear panel, and arches require some welding. The wood was so rooting it crumbled in your hand.
So far I have got the engine working, and removed the wood (pretty much fell off itself). Next job is wings off, engine and g/box out. Then weld it. Quick question how easy is it to flip a bare traveller? I only have a single garage so room is tight. Here's some pics

I've got a traveller rotisserie I can be persuaded to part with.
Its simple with that but you need to avoid bending the shell with any rotisserie, so be sure it can stand it.

Alternatively, 2 geezers can easily tip it up on its side if it is bare.

Hi
Did you make the rotisserie yourself or buy it .Do you have plans.Can't see how the bumper bar connects to the rotisserie, can't be just the treaded bar, is there something to add,can it handle a car with no wood.
Thanks Ian

At that point it is being raised to bolt on to the pivot. that threaded bit is a lifter designed to allow one person loading. It had all glass, gearbox fuel tank, axle wings still installed so it would throw a bare shell about for fun.
It is intended to be used without wood. I bought it and stupidly had it powder coated to look pretty. !!!

I think it was carrolloverjigs . com or something like that.

Thanks guys. The car is now completely stripped so it's just a shell plus doors. I have decided I will just push the car onto its side. But I will make 3 dollies. One for the o/s/f wheel, one for the o/s/r wheel and one to go at the top of the o/s door area. Then I can still push it in or out if needed.
