That looks great. With the custom fabrication of a few "bananna wrap" sheets and some aluminum sheet, it "can" be done. I want one too!!

I think I remember a McGyver episode where he made one from some aluminum foil, a roll of gafer's tape and a soup ladle. LOL!

I'd love to get one of the old spun aluminum "Continental kits"

Here's where you can get one.


I saw it on the trailer last year. The person that made it is "Dave Makel" at "Trailer Buff" in Nellysford, Va. Dave and Martha have been restoring trailers for many years. Dave is known for his truly custom work. The guy can make almost anything. They will be hosting a rally in April of this year. Give Martha and Dave a call. Phone: 434-361-2500

I stop by and spoke to them on Monday of this week, always has something cool in the shop or the backyard.
