I'm thinking of building something with ridges also to hold the hangers/carabiners.

That placement on the rear is superp though, love it.
I agree that the wetsuit drying rack is one of the more clever, and practical projects I've seen. However, that is not surprising considering it came from jwintersteller (also love the Surfrider sticker). Unfortunately it won't work for us since I don't want to have to pop the top everytime time I'm done surfing. If you have a ladder, you could probably utilize that in some way. Currently we just hang our suits from the rear ladder. It is a bit awkward but it works and there is only two of us.

Re: Small Projects Thread

We use the reflix-insulation in our rear windows all summer to temper the AZ heat. Great improvement.

Re: Small Projects Thread

4x4kyaker's reflix-insulation is an inspiring piece of work. I'm definitely doing this.

Does'nt look like a standard SMB penthouse top though - the lifting arms are different and the upholstery and bedding isn't standard. Homemade?

Re: Small Projects Thread

Fire extinguisher mounted

Screwed down the fire extinguisher behind the passenger seat. Allows for quick access and line of sight to the gauge.

Porta-potti

The Curved showed up in the mail so got it installed. Had to remove and reinstall the bottom shelf to make it fit.


There was enough room to left over to store three one gallon water jugs in front of it.

Propane sensor - finely

Have had the propane sensor sitting around for two years. Seemed like a good day to install it.

Re: Small Projects Thread

I use these vacuum caps for my PH hooks as well as other bolts, etc. Many uses. Can be found at O'Reillys or Auto Zone

Nice Larrie, that's on my list. One of those things I need to quit putting off! I have the extinguisher but with no bracket it stays in a cabinet, no good when something is on fire.
