Still need to make ramps and deck them. Can’t wait to assemble in a truck and nail down heights. This is gonna be excellent.

Wishing for panel saw access to make dead straight cuts the the sixteenth. I know there’s a huge cnc router table at work I could favor, but that seems a little overkill. I’ll have to look around. I bet one of the shops has one.

I don’t have enough height for a full stack. They should go nut to butt with 4’ of length to spare in the box for my 2. Hopefully same for several others. Not sure if I can get 2 bros in, that might take different magic.

That’s 12’ plus upright widths. I was aiming for 12’ actual. That’s front bumper to rear contact patch on my bro.

Front tires on 571 tuck in the rear uprights. That’s more overlap than I had with the engine crane silliness.

EJC probably has big boy table saw.... or just have the guy at homedepot do it where you get the material from

so your trucks would fit in the box bumper to bumper, your just making it so the front truck is up on racking for more perm storage under it?

putting shelves with more racking beams in a few spots?  put the inside on up a notch so the shelf leans to contain stuff to the box walls!  cant wait to check this out, planning on it for picnic i assume

Not certain picnic will happen but trying. I’m going over Friday to help prep and map, that’s got priority.

Exactly right on the ramps, except they get removed to tuck rear rig under tail of front rig

Without the rear mounted spare on 571, they might fit bumper to bumper on the floor. This gets me 4ish feet of overlap.

I think LowesDepot charges a buck a cut? That’d be a bunch because the holes aren’t 48”.  It’ll be like 20 saw swipes. Quick work but silly to pay that way for it.

Whole lot easier on the way out than on the way in. I went up an elevator with a 47.5” door that wasn’t 8’ deep corner to corner. Fun.

Should have just driven down the fucking sidewalk to the at grade entrance instead of the dock but at least the elevator dumps into the wood shop (former dining hall. It’s a mess of repurposed space)



May head to grab joe yet tonight and thinking of flex timing tomorrow. I know I’m gonna get boned on a server I have to build out. Was supposed to be done first thing this week and it’s due in by EOB tomorrow. I committed to delivery by start of next week.
