Tamiya has a new one coming out that looks really slick. It's a little pricey (Tower Hobbies wants $17 on pre-order) but it's cheaper than the Shabo one, and really adjustable and versatile. I Plan to make a bunch of knock-offs of the Shabo one so I can have a lot of bodies going in and out of the paint booth (The one I PLAN to build....) and getting decalled, but the Tamiya one might be a little too nice to pass up.

I did mine free. a block of wood with 4 pieces of coat hanger wire glued in place on it, similar to the above drawing.

Firemodelman, that's what I did too, drilled holes and glued the wire in place.

What I use is an empty CD Spindle from a 50 pack of CDs sitting on an old wooden stool.. Just put some tape on top of the spindle and set the roof of the car on that. Seems to work fine for me
