Car body holding fixture.

Recommended Posts

Scrwdrvr:

The blue vertical stands are adjustable horizontally plus the left one is spring loaded so the body is held by a clamping action.

There are also grooves in the black pieces that mate with the body.

This seems like a good place for this. I am working on some taillights and came up with this. It works great, but I think that anything like a quart jar, yogurt container, coffee can, etc. filled with sand or something for weight, would work fine for front or rear end work.

Picked one up a while ago and finally got to use it, and all of a sudden I can't imagine what I would do without it.

I got one and my problem with it is in order to get the body tight enough to do anything with it you have to squeeze it in on the ends. I'm afraid to warp or hurt the body.

I just ordered one on Ebay. Hopefully it'll help seeing my hands get shaky trying to put the really small stuff on. $13.17 total with free shipping.

I didn’t make it super right, and I can see that being more of an issue on a different car. With this one being pretty squared off front and rear it worked well.
