    S body on a roll over jig

    Just a question for you all, has anyone ever got an s body on a roll over jig? S14 in my case.

    Where is the best place to secure it? Kit I have you have to make the mounts from the jig to the car yourself so wondering where is best. Guessing in the frame rails but it doesn't seem to allow much box section into the frame rails and there doesn't seem to be anywhere to get securing bolts through the rails.

    So looking to see what other people have done in the past to be safe as possible. Any pictures of how its been done would be great.

    Ta,

    on the front I made brackets that bolted to the chassis rails where the front bumper reinforce usually bolts up.
    for the rear I just made 1 foot long legs that slotted into the chassis rails.
    the hard part is guessing where the 'centre line' through the car is so it rotates easy, the scary part is spinning it for the first time.

    Thanks guys, had a crack at getting the rest of the car stripped down and the jig built up so I have a plan now. Only pain now will be getting the car 3ft higher in the air to get onto the jig.

    That's first spin is going be be a clenching moment

    Mine consists of 2 A frames bolted together under the car. The brackets only go into the chassis rails about 8" and are not bolted in, but I've never had any movement. Yes, the first spin is very tense, now I don't give it a second thought.

    Two overweight middle aged men had no problem getting a totally stripped 13 up high enough.

    Stuff, coins etc. had got into the B pillars, but nothing in the sills. Car has been rolled so many times they're empty now.
