More on Da Box

All 4 threaded rods are installed and the bolts are countersunk.
We also attached the eyelets to the top for lifting onto the truck.
I hate to say it, But if anything fails on this box it will be the eyelets.
The threaded rods are 5/16 and the eyelets are too, But I'm just not sure if that's enough.
We also got it mounted on the 3" caster today.
Tomorrow if the rain stops, We can cut the top and start on the other box.
Monday, I will get the cables and I'm going to call about the Plexi for the side panels.

I just have one thing to say Calvin. YOU ARE A MANIAC !!!!! I can't imagine tackling two of those boxes so soon before the start of MegaCon. Especially with all your 2 zillion other projects. The box I built took a lot of time.

MANIAC !

Can't wait to see you guys in Orlando.
