Hey there. Nice RACK.

factoid

Yes! We have discovered the perfect rack for XyloVan – an architectural salvage expert up in Santa Barbara was liquidating his business, for sale and had this parked atop a storage unit. This is a burly, buy 10-foot-long tube-steel rack, floored with heavy duty wire mesh it’ll be the second floor of the van, the observation deck, the framework for all the lighting and shade structures, and lord knows what other trouble we’ll get into.

Dave was kind enough to cruise up there with me, and help me wrestle it onto the van …

The old mounting bolts were completely seized with rust, so with me holding the top and Dave applying brute force on the bottom, we basically snapped them all off …


… and replaced them all with fresh zinc-plated 3/8ths-inch bolt-flat-washer-lock-washer-nylon-locknut sets …


Look at that. Rock solid – you can stand on it, walk all over the roof of the van. We’re going to clean it up and paint it, and it will serve as the foundation for a *lot* of fancy plans yet to come …
