Default Supports

I weigh more.
I placed a padded saw horse at each bulkhead and installed the gear legs with 4x4 blocks drilled to fit and used as tires or feet. I made deck supports from 1x 8 then cut up the crate top into two long pieces to fit inside as a deck to lay on. The slick surface of the crate plywood makes a nice deck. Added a pillow and it was pretty cozy. Sweetie drove and I bucked. Use ear protection. It's really loud in there.
I might even consider it the upgraded dog house next time I get in trouble.

I cannot be, nor will I be, held responsible if you try to do the same things I do and it does not work and/or causes you loss, injury, or even death in the process.
