#1 Where to mount rotisserie on rear of S3

Post by Davie jay » Mon Mar 11, 2019 4:10 pm

Hi,

I have managed to get hold of a rotisserie to enable me to work on my S3. I am looking to make some brackets to get the rotisserie to fit my car but need to know if any of you good folks have any pictures of where to mount it to the back end? I have had a few suggestions, but believe a picture tells a thousand words.

Here's a whole BBQ, with Rotisserie, mounted on the back of a car. Does this help? :lol:

Ha Ha good one Malcolm.

Wow James, that's a feat of engineering - you must need a degree in architecture to build that?

Not sure my amateur welding skills can stretch to something as complicated as that. :sad:

Hi Steve,

Thanks for the link. However I already have the rotisserie. I am just having difficulty seeing where to mount it onto the rear end of the car.

Hi Davie
I'm assuming the rear end of an S3 is not a lot different to an S2? If this is the case then these pics of the rear rotisserie mounting on my S2 might help?
