Built an extension for my teraflex accessory carrier so I could mount a 4gallon rotopax. Still get some wiggle on the rotopax but it seems to be holding up pretty well. I think at some point I need to extend one of the poles down to the base of the carrier and screw it in there to take some of the torque off of the main mounting arm that's welded onto the carrier.

What did you paint the gutter guard with? Just regular paint or green plasti-dip?

I used some zip tie plates, zip ties and gorilla glue. Make sure to use a little bit of gorilla glue or some of the zip tie plates will come off. I followed the instructions I found here:

Took it out for a spin and a few new pics with the bumpers installed. And stooopid me decided to use the E brake . Now I get to rip apart the rear brakes to disconnect it and get it freed up.

Sorry but I'm not sure I follow. You used your hand brake and something bad happened?

Here's what I used. I bought the black grating, removing the need to paint.

Good luck!!
