Default Side / End Lift

I seen one of these online and thought it was something that would come in very handy to me . Doing a lot of part jobs on car repair ( rust wise )
Lots of pictures :
This is a work in process , If anyone has any ideas of a better way to do this i.d be happy to hear . My idea is to use a 3 ton long stroke jack and build a scissor type system , It needs to be low , as im going to use this to lift auto.s to a decent height to repair the lower panels ,

A few more ,frame is built and wheels are installed , the wheels are a bit light , but the bearing and wheel frame is heavy , so if the wheels can,t stand the weight i will just replace them with solid steel one,s

Is this a fixture to hold the body panel after it has been removed from the vechile? Having a hard time picturing how this thing works.

At first I thought he was going to build a rotisserie but not anything like the one I built, so the plot thickens.
Good luck

I think it's plenty tough enough. Looks good so far.

Is there any other way? The holes are for plug welds.
