    I don’t think the aluminum case thing is that big a deal anymore.. Lots of tricks in them big motors.. I hope you checked your list twice!! 😎 I bet Franz and Pat will get you dialed in when you come down.. They faborocate like pro’s!!!

    Yes, Pat and Franz are amazing, Its a killer team you have at KCW!

    I ordered steel for the rack yesterday. Let’s do this!! I want to make Jason’s rack one of a kind. Supa-Kustom! Led lights strips and stuff.

    Hell yeah! I will bring the light and accessories I plan to have on the rack and that will help us lay it out. I could use some input as I have thought about it 2,000 times.

    I will head your way Thursday October 6th.

    25 Sticks of 3/4 on the way!

    Gonna build 5 racks. Β  If Anyone our there wants one…better speak up!

    How much? Β I’m betting around $2k by the time you paint it, clamp it and put it on the bus!! Β If we are lucky, it will be less.

    The harder I work, the better I feel, sorta 😎

    Awesome! The best looking rack out there in my opinion. I will share some pictures in my area and see if we can get any sold. Not surprised at 2k for a rack, steel is expensive! So is paint and wood!, holy shit this stuff has tripled in price 😲. BBB is not far away either and I sure someone will want one there.

    I will get the clamps and loops in the mail to you guys that I got for the racks, I think it was for a total of 3 racks.

    I’m trying to figure this out in my head..Β  I’m glad your talking Oct… 😎

    I was all excited about building some racks.. but then got to thinking about all the setup involved, and your only here for 2 days of the work week… Maybe we need to start on them the monday before you get here..Β  Have hopefully 4-5 racks done,Β  Just sell you a rack and you can spend your time making your rack the most bomb rack ever!?!?!?!?!Β  I am trying to spend as little time on this project as I can, otherwise, well, the racks will cost more than any of us are hoping..Β  but if I don’t build 5, It will definitely cost too much to build just one… labor wise…Β  Β  So I need to front the cost on 5 so that I can help you out…Β   😎 😎 😎

    John, having a rack built will be awesome! Totally understand its a pain to make racks, I can spread the word and deliver rack on my way home. Do you know how many are available and roughly how much?

    I will also need to make a ladder, should I wait until I get there to get that steel? Need to figure out routing and location and will need KCW team input.

    Looking forward to being back at the ranch, its a great time while getting a lot of work done. I will probably take the 6th off of work and I have until Monday if needed.

    I have a ladder we can copy that folds.. Β I prefer permanent ladders… Β when I want it, I don’t want to get it off the roof I need on! Β And I don’t want to carry a ladder inside my bus!!!

    we will start the Monday before you get here and knock all the racks out… we is me included!!!  😎😎😎😎. Β  It will be the cheapest most production style run we are capable ofπŸ‘πŸ»πŸ‘πŸ»πŸ˜πŸ˜πŸ˜πŸ‘πŸ»

    Sounds great, the ladder for my bus I wantΒ  to mount permanent but it will run wires in it to the rack. If possible I can fabricate that when I get there as it might be more custom than the folding one. I am also thinking of trying to mount it on the corner but we will see how space works out. Fucking custom bullshit.

    RIGHT!!!!Β  Β Thats how my little crappy roof rack turned into a sky deck and an awning!!!!Β  The awning has been priceless!!!Β  and I do love my skydeck!! I don’t get up there as much as I used too…. but.. I still love how I can pie SOOOO much shit up there… 😎

    Might need like 8 clamps on the rack I would make!!!Β  😎  On shasta… the most common break is roof rack legs… So.. If Jason actually plans on rallying this rig, maybe the legs need a gusset or a triangle brace???
