Our cars are considered unibody. So other than the front and rear subframes, they are pretty much one piece. Some guys have created a rotisserie somehow, to allow them to blast the undercarriage. I'll see if I can dig up some pictures.

If the rot is severe it's probably cheaper to buy a clean roller and swap your parts into it. Our cars are cheap and ones with spun bearings or smashed valves are plentiful, it rarely makes financial sense to do any major body restoration unless you are going to do the work yourself.
