most shops don,t have a rotisserie,
you can do the job with a MIG OR TIG welder, a plazma cutter or air cut off tool and clecos or 1/8" drill and 1/8" pop rivets

These super heavy duty jack stands will hold most cars and trucks safely at near 2 feet off the ground. Perfect for repair work or storage.
having 6 jack stands so you can place one at all four corners and two mid frame to prevent the cars frame from flexing during repair work helps

Full pan should NOT be replaced while on rotisserie because the unibody will twist & flex. Best to have the subframe removed and the body on solid level supports.
