I've got a lot of HDPE on my sidecar. In the States there's nothing that beats McMaster-Carr for easy selection. The stuff is almost indestructable!
I've been trying to think of away to incoperate some flex in to the tower but without it getting bouncy, I don't know why I didn't think of using plastic. It's the obvious choice now Ive seen it used.

I have my road book on rubber mounts as well. When new it was ok but now on rough tracks it moves so much i cant read it.

I don't think you would get that problem with plastic.

I think I'll try replacing the two side plates on my tower with plastic and leave the rubber mounts out.

Thanks for the inspiration guys.
