|Dave Tomlinson's Boot rack.
Chrome tubes, with 8 towel rail ends, bought from B&Q. Cut the tubes to length, and mount them on your boot lid.
|I've made a spare wheel bracket that is
strong enough to have a rack clipped over it to carry camping equipment, although the
inside of the boot MUST be strengthened up and braced to carry the weight. The rack
is just put over the tyre and a tie down strap put around the whole wheel to secure it.
This boot rack is best for the monocoque chassis.
|This is an
alternative boot rack for a 2B chassis, made by Dave Tomlinson, the rack is made up of
square section tubing that he's 'found' with two lengths of larger square tube fastened to
the bottom of the spare wheel hoop, these will allow the legs of the rack to slid into
them, and the whole lot is kept in place by a ½" dia pin that goes through both
pieces on each leg.
as you can see from the first photo, Dave has bolted the 'mounting' tubes to the 'loop' but they could be welded on, taking care about petrol fumes. He has tested it out, and says that it will take his weight on it no problem!
Note, you must have your numberplate on view even if the rack is loaded up.
