Luggage Racks
« on: April 08, 2019, 04:32:09 PM »
Got my luggage racks finished today, they might not be like originals but only have $40 in them. As a old colonel in our groups says (field experience)

Those are nice! The footman loops are a nice touch. They look great.

Glad you guys approve, don’t really do drawings I Just start cutting and welding here on the farm. Drivers side is 18 1/2 X 26, passenger side 22 1/2 X 26. Used old 1 1/2 in bed frame angle from scrap pile and 1 1/2 flat steel. You might have to go out to armored bolts, I used the 6 studs on each side where I presume there where storage boxes mounted at one time. I’ve noticed in most pictures they do go out to edge of HT. My opinion is that many of these were built in the field from whatever they had available (just like mine!!) attached picture of washer spacer and lock nut.
