Before welding the “legs” to the bed, cut in the cold connections that will be needed to connect the bed to the car and the skewer to the bed.
The straight leg will have the most complicated cuts because it is on the same side as the skewer turning mechanism. An hook shape will be needed to be drilled and cut out of the metal in order to insert the skewer. See diagram for drill hole planning.
After these holes are drilled, you will need to use a band saw to cut through the metal to connect each hole. This will leave an open hook shape in the metal to easily insert and take out the skewer, while keeping it stable and from falling out when rubber-banded to the car’s tire.
After the hook shape is drilled, single drill holes must be inserted into the ends of each of the other sides of the legs. At the top of the bent leg, a hole needs to be made the same distance as the hole where the skewer will rest in the straight leg, so the skewer will be straight and even while cooking.
At the bottom of each of the legs, you will need to drill a hole that will hold a bolt that connects the bottom of each of the legs to the base of the car. (Holes will be drilled into the plastic in a later step.)
Note: When planning the holes for the base of the bed’s legs, make sure they are deep enough to be able to be drilled into the plastic base.
FINALLY, you may weld the top each of the legs onto the coal bed, where the tiny rectangles stopped. The legs should be close to the front of the bed, ending where the angled front of the bed begins.
