I'll have to try that, I have some scrap wood from a few projects around. I've been using strips of a thin, heavy-duty rubber material that I get sometimes at work. (The rubber sheets are put on the floor of a truck, and then a pallet is put on, and it's supposed to help keep the skid from sliding.) On my second build we had to work around cables running on the top of the tube, so a couple of strips of metal that were a tich narrower than the space between the cables sandwiched between a rubber strip on the tube and a couple of strips inder the tank has done well.


Any day that starts with a good ride is already a better day, and a bad day riding still beats a good day working.
