I'm getting a closed truck trailer to transport the liner when the time comes.
Got a truck owner who said he'd get us to the venue and back if we get a trailer.

I don't have anything strong enough to pull a trailer of the size needed and where does one store it when it's not being used.

When I started out in F2 I found a sponsor who built trailers. The guy outdid himself. He built a box called Columbia because it looked like the Space Shuttle.
It had space for two cars and about a hundred tires. The BMW I used to tow with was boiling after 15 miles.  :-D :-D :-D

Brown Santa came by today and dropped of a new battery and alt. cut off switch today ---tomorrow I will mount it and measure the length for the cable that then will run to the back of the car to comply with the rules. Will pull out the solenoid that died at El M and get it warrantied ---.

Got my 1/4" square pad out today and drew  to scale what my newly configured trailer will look like---moving the axles back one set of holes an started a materials list and started searching.  Will have most of the needed stuff, I will have to buy some heavy 3"x4"x 1/4' angle to extend the trailer frame 8'  and a some other smaller angle for the floor joist. The old boat trailer will save me a ton, for it has the 4" and 3" channel to build the new verticals between the upper rail and the frame.
