Most of you probably carry conduit in a 4" or 6" PVC pipe strapped to your truck.

Once while thinking about the lack of aerodynamics a plug cap has, I thought about putting a bullet-nose on the front. Might save me a 1/4 mpg! Then I figure, why stop there? May as well make it an attention grabber... Here's a mock-up...

Whaddya think?

Well crap.. that ain't workin' either...

I get a "forbidden" error message from ECN...

Hmmmmm...

Right click on the link here: http://www.kellyelectric.electrical-contractor.net/photos/AIM.jpg

Click on "Copy Shortcut"

Right Click onto the address bar, click "Paste", hit "enter"...

Let it load, then hit "Back" on your browser...

Maybe?

Looks neat, but in the current paranoid climate, you just might have your truck taken out by an FBI SWAT team! [Linked Image]

In the town I used to live in, we made our own "Cruise Missile", & mounted it to the top of my truck. A 5" PVC body, the nose was the float from a stock tank waterer. The wings were made from an old aluminum "Flooded" sign.
Got stopped by the CA Highway Patrol. He really didn't know what to do, as we were doing nothing illegal. Let us go, with a warning to "Stop being so wierd!!"

Looks great!
One suggestion-
Replace "We aim for safety" with OSAMA.
We all should have on with his name on it!

No offense intended, but I've always been led to believe that half of southern Calif. is wierd!

Paul, no offense taken. Just don't hold it against the others. My friends and I were pretty well known to be the wierdest of the wierd, doing nearly anything for a laugh. [Linked Image]
