I am sure it was not an easy task the process looks a litttle toxic hope you were wearing a respirator or at least a dust mask. A long with payment you get a Bro fishing pass when you make it across the PA border and come out to the mighty West look me up I will try my hardest to get you hooked up!!

    Here's what is going out tomorrow morning:

    Pow4Brains-Paid in full
    Happy Fun Ball-Paid in Full
    Sunpower-Paid in full
    2Funky-Paid in full

    Donkey Punch gets the next one, he is paid in full and has a trip coming up. I'll have yours, in black, to UPS by Thursday. They guarantee delivery by July 1st even if I ship it out Friday, but why cut it that close....

    I should have one more ready to go on Thursday as well.

    As for the rest, I need to play it by ear. I only bought 6 hinges/latches (needed to make sure everything worked first), and am waiting to hear back about a job so i don't want to 100% commit to anything at the moment. That being said, i will keep popping them out of the mold and once I have a few done I'll order up some more hinges. Worst case, My dad paints and puts together a few!

    Thanks for the patience everyone, I forgot how much working with fiberglass sucks day in and day out. Things were slow in the beginning getting the kinks of the process and design worked out, but now it is going pretty smooth, aside from sanding those curves before paint...



    On that note, does anyone object to a slight texture finish on the paint? I'd like to find somehting that mimicks the texture of automotive plastic.

    Mine showed up the other day, nice work krp8128 they turned out great.

    What are peeps doing to mount the pipes to your roof rack? I'm thinking about bending some flat stock around it then just drilling holes in the rack.

    Just got mine unpacked. Looks schweet. As for mounting I can't decide if I am going to use quickfist clamps, or SS "U" bolts. I like the quickfists because they will be fast, but the U bolts would be more secure.

    I got back into town at 12:15 am Wednesday and was gone again by 4pm, and just got back late last night. I'll have a few in the next couple of days ready to go out.

    Jeesus last week was hot/humid ont he east coast. I went out to the shop a few times early in the wek to work on stuff and couldn;t do it, my respirator was filling up with sweat...


    UPS is open 4-6pm tomorrow, going out then will be 2Funky and Impact Hottub.

    Adipose, skifishbum and telee (still waiting to hear from you!!!) are up next.


    Here's my current situation, I am still unemployed, still living (unfortunately) with the parents. Incredibly fucking broke at the moment, just had to borrow money from my old roomate to pay some bills. I'm in and out of town for job interviews and such, but so far nothing has come of anything. I don't want to commit to a ton more of these boxes, as I don't want to have unfinished orders when i am trying to move for a job. They are not coming out as quick as I had hoped, and I am getting a little sick of them.

    Since I am out of hinges and latches, I am going to wait until the next 3 boxes are done, then order another 6 sets. Basically this means that (as of now) 3 more boxes are up for grabs. Please, don't send $$ until I give word that things are moving along to where I feel comfortable taking payments again.

    Finally got some time to try and rig this up, so I glued in my tubes and was getting ready to mount to the truck when I noticed that the couplings that were molded in to the case were cracked actually the fiberglass around the couplings cracked I guess from stress of the tubes(pvc) they actually are kinda heavy. So upon further inspection it look's like the fiberglass never really grabed the pvc couplings when the mold was made, maybe they don't like each other?? You can see where the pvc was scratched up to help the bond but I don't think it happend I still think this is a great Idea but maybe the materials are a bit heavy?? ABS black plastic or maybe electrical conduit (still heavy) would work better. Please note I am not complaining!! I was well aware what I was getting into.. I still think krp8128 did a great job I still appreciate the effort and hard work!!!! I am not looking for a refund at all!!Thinking back the ABS pipe would have been a much better choice for the tubes. How are all the others working out??
