December 9, 2008Hey everyone its been awhile since I posted on this site mainly because Im still unimployed and been in kind of a funk lately trying to pay bills and whatnot. Anyway i found and old road sign while fishing the other day and used the steel to build a fishing rod holder for the from of my truck.I used 2 smaller pipe mounted to were my tow hooks would go and the whole rig slides onto them so i can remove it. It still has to be welded and painted but i mocked it up today to get an idea as to what it will look like but i need some help.
The rig is going to be painted black after I weld it. Origanally I was going to use steel for the tubes maybe some old fence posts and weld them on but I couldnt find any so I went with what i had with is pvc. The way they are mounted now is with pipe straps but im not happy with how sturdy they are. They move side to side slightly and im trying to figuare out and easy quick way to solidify them. So I need suggestions. Let me know what you think I will post more pictures when it is painted. By the way i have $4 in this whole setup since i had to buy the clamps.
