  • Outfitting my Stacker


    Unboxed the Pit Pal Stuff and put in trailer. Mounting it all is on the very long todo list. Also need to mount the winch in the floor compartment. Have a couple cord reels and an air hose reel also needing to be mounted.

ID:	1868 Here's some of the work so far

    On one of the doors, there's a fire bottle holder, 5' tire gauge holder, a screwdriver rack, a door cabinet, and some grips that hold my weather station for travel and the pole with weather station above the stacker when at the track.

        In the back I mounted a broom holder, and drilled a couple holes in it so I can strap down my blowers. I use it to blow the trailer out of the back door, blow away crap on hard pits, and to blow of the car mat dry when it rains. Below that I mounted a jack pouch, and to either side are cord hangers

          Next to the overhead cabinets I mounted an Oil Bottle rack. I also used Industrial Grey Velcro to hold up the lift's remote.

            At the front of the trailer, I mounted a coat rack with 4 Stainless Steel Hangers for my safety jacket and pants. Above I mounted baskets for my safety shoes and gloves and from the ceiling is a swivel hook for my helmet and neck brace.

              Next up was filling the tool cabinet drawers with my tools. I need to go back through to clean and oil many of them.

                      More work on outfitting the Stacker.

                      The goal is to organize a 2′ shorter trailer with far less storage than the last one.
                      So far the oil shelves are up and the lift control mounted to side of top cabinet; coat rack, helmet hanger, and baskets for racing gloves and shoes are on the front wall.

                      The telescopic pole for the weather station is mounted on the wall. for storage.

                      A fire bottle is mounted to attic ladder.

                      Some of the Specialty Tools are in the lower cabinet. Sill more ae needing to be stored there.

                      Logs and cleaning supplies in upper cabinets

                      I still need to mount something to store my folding Director’s Chair.

                      In the attic I started drilling holes.

                      Pressed in some threaded inserts

                      Bolted in some angle iron, which can be quickly unbolted if I was to need some more flat floor space.

                      Spare Parts tubs ain’t goin anywhere. Yes, I need to flip the front floor bracket around.

                      Buster, my Ole Chocolate Lab, has been goin to races with me since 2005. He’s been having a rough time lately and can barely walk. However he was so excited that I was working all day in the Stacker that he found the strength to climb in and keep me company. His tail was wagging like he was a pup again.I sure hope he makes it long enough to go to a few more races. He’s never happier than when were. racing.

                      A couple feet of three in pipe with an end cap, and s a notched 4″ to 3″ reducer

                      and a little pewter paint

                      and I have a holder for the High Strength clear RTV that I use to seal my oil pan to the block

                      I mounted a couple baskets on the rear-side door to hold various items (gloves, carb caps, ..) often needed when working on the car in the pit. Also riveted three magnetic bars to door to securely hold a set of wrenches for convenience.

                      The other side door is also outfitted for convenience.

                      And a Wall Mount for my cordless drill. I’ll mount another for cordless Impact wrench
                      I still have to mount and wire up the winch, mount a cord-reel and air hose, install a radio and speakers, make a rack for Jack stands and mount some arrangement for hardware.
