Looking to fabicate a way to move car out of garage once complete cradle removed? thought I could weld axle to bare cradle to roll out. Doesn't have to be perfect no suspension parts needed. From Allentown Pa. If interested I will trade 2x asking price with parts you might need. war51@rcn.com Thanks Wayne

I have one like this that I have used for years. I used a straight axle from the rear of a front wheel drive car and welded it to a cradle. I can make an otherwise immobile fiero roll able in a matter of minutes with it.
I have some cradles but I am sure you can find one closer to you than I am.

Cradles are getting hard to find up this way. If your search produces little you can try building a wood cradle with posts and four 6" dolly wheels On this end I have used a 1000lb hydraulic table and some lumber to move the Fiero around without a powertrain. This all assumes that you have a paved or concrete floor

'88 or '86? In about a week, I'll have one of each and just south of you (can meet you). What are you looking to spend?

Meant to post this a few days ago. I bought some 2x2 steel tube, casters from harbor freight and some scrap steel plate. I don’t weld but my body and paint guy does. I am having a cart made to be able to move the car either on rough terrain or smooth. Cheaper than a cradle since most things are getting overpriced. Just something to look into.
