Thing is I've been looking to source 5/16" HDPE and can't find it anywhere in small quantities, Gany I would start with that if I could get some.

Tony is the only one that has ridden it with the dual 8's, they're bolted straight to the 2x 3/8" plates and appear so far to handle it very well, also needs more testing, but these setups are pretty promising.



What the duct tape on the tank?
I saw that How is the light output? Ask Tony if I can borrow it for a night ride, I would love to see the look their faces when that thing gets lit off
