Shipping Container From So Cal to BRC

Hey guys - I know SIMILAR things have been asked in the past (I've searched) but wanted to know if anyone has successfully shipped a container they own from Southern Cali to the Playa? We are trying to figure out how to do this for a variety of reasons rather than renting a truck every year. I've lo...

Shipping Container From LA to BRC

Hey guys - sorry if this has been covered in another topic but I didn't see a direct answer when searching.... Our camp has outgrown the cube truck scenario, not to mention the enormous waste of gas and danger of getting it there.....I'm curious if anyone has shipped/or if we're allowed to ship a sh...

Re: Advice for our Mutant Vehicle

I wanted to thank everyone for your help - we're deep into the build at this point and can't wait to see you out on the playa! We'll be at 8:45 and Interstellar with bloody mary's noon to 4. We've incorporated a lot of the ideas here, welded on removable steel supports for the wings, installed the l...

Need space/lot to build Mutant Car in LA

We're need of a space to construct our Manta Ray Art Vehicle, preferably on the West Side. We only need the space on 3 Sundays (7/7, 7/21, & 8/4). The vehicle is a s10 size truck with a 15 foot wingspan addition for our Manta Ray. We will have 15-20 people on site building for 4-5 hours each build d...

Re: Advice for our Mutant Vehicle

Thanks so much for all of those suggestions Ninjaparamedic! Would you mind explaining further how you attached the spandex skin to the skeleton. That's the part we're kind of baffled about now. I like your idea about using large sections of fabric, rather than doing small sections. So you used bolts...

Re: Manta Car Structural Help!

Any advice on rigging to make moving/flapping wings would be greatly appreciated also. We've done some rough mockups that I'll attach. We're thinking of doing a sailboat style winch & pulley system with ropes to make the wings flap. The confusing part is how to do it in a way that the pvc will bend ...

Re: Manta Car Structural Help!

Thanks, that's extremely helpful!

That's a good starting point for us I think, take off the bed, use 4x4 posts, and the doorjamb to mount the wings.

We appreciate it kindly...

Re: Manta Car Structural Help!

Krash - thanks that's very helpful. We won't be doing a 2nd level but we do have "wings" so yes the wind is a major concern. I think wind slats is a great idea.... And thanks for the advise of "not connecting to the body." Definitely going to use the camper trailer pivots as connecting points! We're...

Thanks for that question. We've been in touch with the DMV since January, are fully registered, and have been put on on the eplaya support page etc. So we're covered as far as that goes, but thanks for asking!

Thanks Sync -

We do need to dissemble it for transport - would this change the advice above?

Thanks!

Thanks Elliot - after all this, it seems one of our camp-mates is an el camino specialist!

We're going for an el camino and strapping the speakers to the roof. I appreciate the follow up, it's been very helpful.

Re: Advice for our Mutant Vehicle

Thanks Elliot. The ATV is definitely out, and it sounds like golf cart is out, too. 4x4 truck is the leading contender right now - or I was thinking a tractor pulling a trailer (rather than the atv). Seems like a small tractor is make to go slowly and pull a lot of weight. I'm personally keen on the...
