Not a Post Sedan

I wanted to completely wash and clean the under carriage and belly of this car today, but in did not want to do it inside of the shop....as it makes quite a mess.

Therefore I took the project outside.

I used a German made auto tilter. It works great, however I would not recommend it for a first-time user or unless you have professional supervision.

This super rare 1968 Hurst Olds, is a remarkable west coast survivor with only having a few minor add ons, such as.... Exhaust System, Shocks, Hoses and some minor Paint Work.

I am getting this H/O ready to attend the “Class of ’68” Showcase at the 2018 MCACN.

I was feeling Strong Today

Wow, nice contraption! Beats getting rained on under a lift. What cleaning solutions do you use? The car looks great. Were boxed lower control arms standard on those cars?

Theay are called.....Liqui Vehicle tilter, made in Germany.

They are no longer being made for US production.

You can Google it.

The only US Company that was selling them was Eastwood.
However they no longer sell them.

Pat,

Most all '68 H/O's were equipped with the optional Boxed Rear Arms.....but not all of them.

I used a mixture of 3 different spray degreasers.

I will look at the brands I used....on my next visit to the shop.

Dan

looks like a quick fab for me! ( I get why they prob aren't sold anymore - litigation tends to unfortunately be rampant these days and liability on this product would be big I'm sure... kinda like suing the gas can manufacturer for some idiots mis-use - hence the reason gas cans these days take advanced engineering in them just to make them dribble out of the spout..) That is a super neat deal - def gonna put it on my "must make " list

Somehow I missed this thread....

That is quite a unique device. Looks like it would store really compact.

Do you need to drain fluids before tipping the car? Gas, power steering, brake fluid, trans, engine, coolant?

That HO is mint!!

I like it! I see Eastwood has a similar one for $1400. Oh, I miss the old days of early 60s. Very few tools, working under a tarp (if we were lucky we had a second tarp to lay on) in the snow. We could never dream there'd be tools like this.

Ryan,

You missed many threads as you were busy getting your W-31 ready for MCACN.

Actually only when I tilted the opposite side, only then.....about 3 gallons of fuel poured out....and small amount of gear oil came out of the vent. No engine oil, no power steering fluid, no trans fluid or coolant ever leaked at all

As Spring approaches.... I will be doing the same to the 1970 Rallye 350
