The newly purchased fuselage was attached to a homemade rotisserie fixture on wheels. The fixture supported the fuse and allowed it to be turned and held in place for welding parts on, attaching floorboards, installing components, and for fabric covering and painting.
The fuselage stayed on the rotisserie for 4 years until it was removed for sand blasting and painting. It was then re-attached and the rotisserie was motorized for easier turning. It stayed attached for another two years for fabric covering and painting until it was finally removed and let to stand on its own wheels.
