Just wondering, looks like a nice way to camp. See you on the Ghost town run.

You could easily get that welded up, that way swinging branches can't take it out on the trail. Looks good.

No but you can weld in aluminum pipes instead or weld mounting tabs to the steel pipes and bolt them on (or vice versa). I think the JB Weld might be a dissapointment in the long run, but its not important its just a suggestion.

Alum to steel? Well, if GM says it, it can be done. I think he is volunteering... I'd bet the alum would fracture at the braze though.

it won't be that strong, and won't really stand up to hf vibrations. almost like soldering, as you would have to use a low tensile rod.

Better would be to tig on some feet to bolt the railings down with.

Is this something I can do with solder and a blow torch? Not sure how I would do the feet since the railing now sticks out past the deck. I have the foot that I removed (See orginal pic).

I don't see the railing right there as anything but cosmetic. It won't be used to hold the generator.

Thanks

Better yet, I'll just drill a hole all the way through and run a bolt through it.
