Made the prototype HOT tar can today for doing small cracks you can't get with the bigger machine or 3 to 4 crack only driveways it's not worth firing up the buggy for .

4" exhaust pipe 10" long. 1" conduit 10" long and slash cut . 3/8 plate disc I had from a scrap job to cap the bottom off and give it some weight down low and not want to tip over . Welders chipping hammer from cheepy china store cut off head . Bend rod 90* and cut off 2" and use on the bottom .

Just waiting on some domed 4" caps then cut 1 in half and weld on top .

Looked at a lot of options and said to thin or way to big or to much money . . . So I just made my own BEEFY tar can . And if it gets buildup just heat the whole can up and dump it out .

Didn't pan out for the deal . But found them local for about same deal anyday of the week .

----------------------------

i think i found a deal on 60 brand new road cones the style i like and with reflective tape on them . . bonus is over 75.00 on order they ship FREE . . . and there on sale now 20% off also .

yes there only 18" tall but thats all we need for driveways and saves room and get more on the rig .

Well hit a snag . Lots of back log on parts so trailer axle places are not doing package deals now as there short on stuff . So to piece order it all will cost 2x as much if i got lucky .

So today after getting disappointed 1 more time i rechecked fb market place and BAM 1hr away was a new old stock set of dexter torsion axles 8 lug for $800.00 bucks for BOTH .

I couldn't hook up the trailer and get there any faster . But i scored these units . Only 1 problem i found later was he listed them wrong . Hub face to hub face was listed around 87" but i found them to be 95" :doah: . . .

Not to big a deal but just need to plan better is all . I will make it work for this trailer .

Next step is hit up my local tire shop and get 4 235/85/16 trailer tires in 14ply . Not sure if i can just run gm rims or if i need to get some trailer rims . Reason for this is the max 102" width rules .

got my breakaway batt/switch combo today . also ordered 32 lugnuts and 5 rims and 5 tires to the tune of 1,050.00 bucks . . . but i got some 225/90/16 14ply tires and 0.50+ offset rims in 16x6 8x6.5 . so we can make it tall and skinny in the tire area . also ordered some 2" pipe fittings and valves to plumb the tank out .
