Patrick nice mod.
Well I'm home from the Quartzite gathering and used my generator quite a bit there as well as on a few days while heading home. Sure was nice to be able to use it with such ease.
I came up with a new mod after seeing an add-on at the Quartzite gathering. Thanks to Mel for the idea of an exhaust divertor/noise reducer.
I used leftover diamond plate, L aluminum, rivets and the white trim I purchased at the Scamp
factory. While making this mod I thought back to the people that were surprised that I made my gen box. It made me think about the talent we women have. Most of us know how to sew and use patterns. All I did was dream up the pattern and use a different medium to make the box. Aluminum as compared to material. Saw and rivet gun as compared to scissors and sewing machine. You can do it girls.
Any way, the box is not on permanent, it's removable. I drilled key holes into the divertor box and then simply used screws and lock nuts on the generator box to hang it on. I put one lock nut between the gen box and the screw head leaving just enough room for the divertor key hole to slip over the screw head and locked the screw on the gen box with a lock nut on the inside. I put holes on the bottom front of the divertor thinking I'd use some bungies to hold it down and keeping it from rattling, as Gene did with his. I've found that the box being made out of the aluminum diamond plate is heavy enough there is no rattling and it doesn't need it to be held down.
And thanks to Gene for the idea of adding insulation to the box to help quiet things down. I had added several coats of bed liner to my box which did help stop the tinniness, if that's a word. Adding the insulation did quiet the generator noise down. All we used was some bubble wrap window shields for autos. It's cheaper than the bubble wrap insulation sold at the hardware store. Used 3M spray on adhesive. The insulation was added to the exhaust divertor/noise reducer also.
