I know this has been answered before but I dont remember.How much does a 69 Camaro body shell without frontend sheet metal weigh. Just the bare empty shell to put on a body cart. I need an idea to figure out best way to pick one up and place on cart. Thanks.
I put it on the cart myself. Check out my build thread post #106. I slid the cart in from the side. It was pretty easy. Just use jack stands, some lumber and a floor jack. My car is a mess so I braced it beforehand. Good luck.
In the pic attached, you can see my new "steel" body cart waiting to be pushed underneath the car in the background. I used 4"x4"x7' posts to suspend the shell on jackstands. I made sure to raise it high enough so the old "wooden" body cart can slide out to the side, and so the new "steel" body cart slide in from the back of the car.
Go slowly and it will happen. I thought seeing this pic may help.
I thought about it but didn't pursue it since I had was able to manage the body with the two engine hoists I had laying around and I could use the $300 for something else, like paying for my floor pan. It's a neat idea though.
