      ^ how would the aluminum surface handle weld spatter? You'd also have to be careful with impacts, I imagine.

      very thorough! And seems like quite a capable unit based on specs, both the max wattage and battery capacity are up there. On a side note, one thing that I noticed when reading your post is your estimates of power used by house refrigerators...

      Interesting that these jaws are hollow. Did not expect that.

      I'm thinking that a 2x4 should be fine for 99% of casual welders and weld jobs out there.

      Must be missing something, but doesn't seem to me that the depression you show with the square is from beating. Wrong place to hammer, and the paint is still there.

      Assuming this is a real post, where do you get a new Defender in the US? Seems to me that the Defenders are capable. They are not very reliable and are expensive to maintain from the little I know, but if you don't mind spending the $$ and...

      if the ribs are precision cut and they span the table, yes, it should be very flat. And even if you bang it up it should just be a local dent and the rest should be fine. At that kind of money, though, I wouldn't dare weld on it, I'd just look...

      Yes, divine intervention. Twice: 1) unsolicited refund and 2) guardian angel disguised as 3 y.o. However, be aware, the 3 y.o. will eventually become a teen... You will pay it all back then, brace yourself....! :)

      ^ if it has good rib bracing underneath, a 1/4" thick top plate might be just fine if you are not going to deal with parts that are a thousand pounds, I would think. And easier to move around than thicker stuff. ^^^ thought about a DIY steel...

      I'm curious how they do it. Seems like they may have replaced the fenders.

      It's fine by me. I think that may give some folks some ideas about DIY mods too.

      If you have one handy, I would also try a air hammer. Put that sucker on the bolt and let it rip for a while. It may just vibrate things looser. If you want to get an acetylene torch, check air / acetylene as well as the better-known...

      Not related to posts directly above, I'm thinking that it would be great if somebody knowledgeable would clarify what exactly "motor running too much" means in terms of how often, how long, when, where the noise is coming from, etc. Heck, it...

      I've seen the Toyota OEM roof cross bars online new for about $170 recently from several Toyota dealers and of course much less used on ebay. The OEM bars are quite curved.
    • e9999
      Caution is important. However, realistically, I would also think that if you use good quality components, if the ratings are sufficient, and if everything is installed properly, you should be fine.
    • e9999
      ouch, so sorry, that was unclear, I meant the connector on the battery going to the fridge. My mistake. I meant that the way you set up the PP with the shrink wrap seems to waste a lot of space since it goes straight out from the battery. It...

      Be sure the shape of the crossbar is correct for the box. You may not want one that is curvy (like the above?) if the box bottom is flat for instance. You can probably buy the correct parts directly from the Thule etc web site, but they will...

      If you want feedback about your specific situation, a pic would help. In any case, talking about the general situation, I would suggest that you proceed carefully. A big box on a roof at highway speeds will experience large forces that many...

      ^ but maybe swapping sparks for sharp little blades everywhere? Or is that not a problem in real life?

      Welcome to the site. It would be nice to introduce yourself. Typically you would want to put crossbars and bolt the roof box to the bars, I assume. The crossbars would be mounted on the OEM longitudinal bars or directly on the roof via some...

      Again, that temperature swing does not matter to the food if the cycle is fairly fast and the food does not have time to equilibrate. You could see a 10 degree swing and the food inside might barely budge by one if it cycles every 14 mins, say...

      I don't mean the PP connector itself, more the connector/connection that attaches to the fridge. Looked like yours is reinforced rigidly going outward, so it seemed that you are going to need extra space to accommodate that.

      nice. Could you have done a right-angle end connector?
