Well then....I'm gona have some pop-corn too!

I have the cradle bracket welded in to the firewall and the unit bolted in as it bolts in on the Saturn.

Geee wiz....what difficult job that was. No room in that foot well or under that dash and I'm about as flexible as a broom stick. My hands are cut to hell and I cricked my old neck. argggg

Next I have to measure and order the steer away and u joints.

I'm hitting the crib....night jim bob as they say on the waltons )

Install looks real good, dread having to do anything under the dash in my 28.

Don't give up, it's far too much fun once you can drive it.

Nice job! Your mounting bracket looks so simple compared to mine. Keep the reports comin'!

That looks great!
I know it`s not so easy when building something new, but I just love a rotisserie. On this column job you would hang the car on it`s side , stand in the door opening and work standing up straigh underneath the dash. I do regret selling mine and I might build another. If you have one laying around, you use it.

Thanks guys.... bracket is done now, added in a couple supports, one bolted so I can remove if needed. I'll take a pic later. Sitting up in bed typing,,,having a hard time getting moving this morning.

Yeah... that's the ticket! A rotisserie would be awesome to have....I just don't have the room here for one.

Thanks Turbo... Ordered the steer clear last night and a coupling that I might be able to weld to the stock u-joint to make the connection. Also ordered the Bruno controller. Thanks again for the link to your write up....it's a big help understanding what to do.
