PVC Gutter Slide Out
I saw a couple of you guys doing this on the site and loved the idea. My father-in-law is notorious for stopping on the side of the road and grabbing stuff he sees. We try to discourage this behavior but he won't change his ways. In fact, I've even caught myself wanting to stop when I see something particularly appealing.
I don't know when, and it was likely even before I met him, but he picked a PVC gutter 10' piece on the side of the road. Today he cut it in half and kept one for him, and gave me one. I slid it in my bumper tube I built last week and it fit perfect. I did drill two small holes on the sides of each end and ran a zip tie through it so it would "catch" anything trying to slide outside of it. The one on the end nearest me had an unintended but nice effect of making a handle of sorts to grab and pull it with too.
I'm thinking I've spent all the time on sewer at this point than I'd like, but I'm pretty sure that's just wishful thinking.
