Project Fox Storage Dilemma - Help Please
I am about to start the body work on the 81 hatch project. I am going to do a complete strip down to almost a frame off restoration.
Anyhow, I have the chance to swap a guy some of the parts from the car for an 8.8 from one of his many donor cars. So, I will be pulling the rear end this weekend along with the last of the removable things from the car.
This brings me to my dilemma. While I have the rear out, I plan on stripping everything down and getting it painted/sealed up. This isn't an over night ordeal as you all know. The problem lies in that I need to be able to push the hatch in and out of the carport as needed when I work on the cobra and/or friends cars. "Back yard Customs" is getting pretty busy as of late.
Obviously, if I didn't have to move the car around, jackstands would fit the bill. Also, if the rear end was installed and there were wheels on the car, simple car dollies would fit the bill. However, neither of those conditions will be true once I pull the rear end as it will be a good bit before I am read to buy all the parts needed to re-install the rear end.
What I was thinking of doing was buying a set of 4 1000 lb movers dollies, putting the car on jackstands on those dollies, and being done with it. Or maybe a set of normal wheel dollies with some sort of platform built so it would hold the jack stands. Do y'all think that would work...and be safe and not too hillbilly? Or, is there something else out there made for this situation...that doesn't cost a fortune anyhow.
If I can get this figured out, I think I will go ahead and do the same thing in the front since the motor will be out this weekend and pretty much everything up front is getting replaced anyhow....including the driver side 5 lug/passenger side 4 lug setup the car has working right now. lol
