The Orange Monster Build Journal
Got my supplies...it will be the simplest of my track builds...but still fun!!! I'll be roasting 14 lbs of pecans tomorrow and building the Orange Monster!!!
Speed Force says...What's Up Peeps!!!
Got rained out yesterday...so lost a day...getting all my cuts done...going to try and catch up!!!
The back section of the Drop will have two of these...they will be bolted on for removal and storage purposes.
The first two legs of the 6 Lane Raceway will sit upon these extensions.
# 10 counter sink bit...# 10 flat head bolt...the bottom of the Drop frame is now flush...which is good because this will be resting on the floor.
I will be drilling pilot holes through the bottom of the 6 Lane Raceway legs and bolting those to the top of the extensions.
Here you get the general idea of where we're heading...once I separate the first two sections I can bolt them down and figure out the rest of my measurements for the remainder of the Drop.
I'm still getting 3D's extension kit for Christmas...but they're selling like hotcakes...so got my back-up plan in today...solid product, but will give way to 3D's eventually. I had to make sure if it didn't show up Christmas morning that the build was covered.
