To be fare, if I remember right, he was going to fill the tubes with concrete.

Didn't he also have a plan using re-bar?

Actually Stan, the whole concrete/rebar came out of my son's mouth while I was on the phone to Mr.Green, Green posted the sugestion, and it grew from there.

but dak e did make the comment about using pvc, but only to come up with a 'prototype', [how that would work, I duno]






BTW, nice digging up dead threads

I made my cage out of wicker. Hey, I had to put the under-water basket weaving class that I took in college to good use! Besides, if I ever roll it I figure that the wicker will cause it to just spring right back upright!

I plan on making a high-tension wire roll cage out of old winch cable and turnbuckles and whatever steel I can trash-pick. it will be great. I am hoping that it will be "springy" enough to bounce me back on the rubber if I should roll.
