I have to make two conduit carriers for my truck, and the factory
made ones are either too small, too expensive, or not practical...
One side is going to be for assorted 3' and 4' fluorescent bulbs,
and the top hatch is the only practical way to handle them. The round
pipe carriers won't hold enough lamps, and it'll be hard to pad and
pack them so they live.
Need two sections of 8" X 8"x 120" (10') NEMA-12 lay-in wireway, and
one matching size scrap length (2' or longer) to use for filler
Raw material examples would be:
I need to "kit-bash" the wireway into two truck rack conduit boxes,
and the wireway is ridiculous expensive new. Even more than the
purpose built conduit boxes - $550-ish each. Eek!
Unless someone has a 124"+ wide box and pan brake and some really
big sheets of 14-gauge...
Plan: Trim off the end flanges (wind noise...) and make flush end
caps out of the scrap length making a 4" extension at the "front" to
make two 124" long boxes, so I can drop Rigid with couplings in
through the 120" top hatch (~119" after the lid seal flanges).
I don't need new, since I'm going to modify it and not use it for
wireway. The paint doesn't matter, it can have a few fitting holes,
etc. As long as it's straight and not too banged up. And I can swap
latches if one or two are pranged, as long as I either get extras from
the scrap section or know who the manufacturer was.
Greater Southern California area would be golden, otherwise they
have to get shipped.
(A western states Road Trip is possible - but the gas for the 1-Ton
beast would be more than shipping. I can always strap them to the
roof rack and bumpers of Dad's Pontiac TransSport...)
