Yeah, loads of different ones over here. With/without wheels etc.
You need to have the suspension mounted though of course. People
say they are fine without draining the sump but if I ever got one I
think I’d worry about leaks unintended orifices. I’d also worry
about the rubbers for my suspension being in tip-top condition for
such loads in unintended directions. Battery off before tilting of
course.through dipstick tubes or under psitons etc–

Yepper, Sir Bustalot! I saw one a few years back and always wanted
to build one! Real cool idea, beyond the fact of removing a lot of
the fluids in the car before ‘flippage!’’–

Peter,
Well, you’ve seen those things for doing an oil change through
the dipstick hole? This would save you the expense of the pump!
All you’d need is a hose and a bucket!–

Wiggles,
For service perhaps not so practical, but an interesting store-
bought alternative to a rotisserie, and the price isn’t outrageous.–

I see these things at all the shows here.  Frankly

Charlotte, its safety depends on your suspension mounts,
which I’d not trust until replaced with new, and even then
not. Especially for a ‘light’ car like the E I think the
two motor stand rotisserie is a better idea if you want to
do bodyshell work. By the time you empty the ashtray,
glovebox, oil, and remove the battery you’ve spent about as
much time as it takes to jack the car up 4 feet off the
ground, or put it on a rotisserie.
In highschool a friend of mine had a mini. Whenever we
had something to do on the floor we would remove the
battery, drain the oil, lay an old mattress beside it and 3
of us would just flip the mini on its side. It was o.k. for
exhaust work, or welding patches in the floor, but for up
and down suspension work it was better to have three guys
lift up that end of the car with a 2x4 and hold it until the
smallest guy replaced whatever was broke.
This method is less expensive than buying a tilter, but
it does sort of preclude nipping down to the supplier to get
a couple of bearings while they’re holding the car. On the
other hand it also reduced beer consumption as, although all
three could spare a hand to hoist a cool one, none of them
could actualy make it to the fridge until the job was complete.

…methinks Ray has been sitting around idle for too long.

Saw something like this demo’d at the Goodwood Revival last year. They
used a 1/2 inch power drill to cycle the thing. Looked pretty good
actually! Like others, I wondered about the fluid spillage etc, but you’re
in the “tear down and rbuild stage” might be very useful.
