Do you want some closeup pictures of how it goes together? Simple construction for the main frame with flat plates welded on in a couple of places. I designed it round the wheels which I think are off a scaffold tower and rated to 450kg each with brakes. The brakes are useful as I found locking one off allowed me to spin the car round on my own.

That is a dynamite piece of kit Wallace, fairplay to you. You could retire on just the orders from here.

Yes, I'll take one too! But I like a gadget, so if mine could have motors on the wheels to I could move it around using a controller like I do with the caravan, that would be great!

I made that to solve a problem I had with the Autovip 1700 car roller. The space I had to work in was just big enough to roll the car on its side one way so I had to turn the car round in order to work on the opposite side floor and chassis for repairs. To turn the car round meant refitting the wheels and steering column then pushing the car out into the road and back in the garage which I could not do on my own. The dolly allowed me to leave all the Autovip car roller hub brackets attached them remove the rolling frame and fit the dolly in its place. I could then roll the car outside on my own and turn it 360 within the drive and just for sheer bloody mindedness I did manage to turn it in the back garden which is narrower.

I did consider selling them at one point but thought they would be of limited use!

I think from memory the box was 50x50mm and the plates were 10x75mm cut to 200mm. They were bolted together using M10 studding with nuts welded on as it was cheaper than bolts. Uprights were round tube to suit the wheels. The clamping effect from the plates on the box section worked better than I thought and the bolts did not need to be murdered up tight to hold firmly.

The car on the dolly in that photo is currently up for sale on Ebay if you search Jensen CV8........
