911 on a rotisserie

Anyone that might tell me where the Center of Gravity is on a 911 bare chassis.

I am in the process of building a simple rotisserie for my 1972 911 coupe and some dimension say off the bottom pan of the car to the rotation axis of the rotisserie would save me having to build in a lot of adjustment range.

A picture of a 911 on a rotisserie would even get me close enough.

Flank's 71 Targa - 911 rotisserie pictures - plus plans so you can build your own.

flank's work is impressive, but overkill?
i made mine from 2 engine stands and some 2" square tube.
these are the best shots i could find, hope it helps.

I used a couple cheap engine stands and and some scrap steel from the recycling bin

Unfortunately I didn't make mine quite high enough so I can only go like 130 degrees before the top edge of the roof makes contact with the joiner. I can probably go 180 if I remove the joiner.

I used a cheap winch on each end to hold positions/help turn the car.

It's lower than "middle" or centre axis... as most of the chassis metal is in the floor/sill/inner rails.

Fishcop,
Can you tell me the name or code of the color that is on your car? It is an awesome shade of blue/purple!
Thanks,
tim
