    Home made Waverunner dolly

    I am putting my little ebay plasma cutter and my Lincoln 140 to work. Got about $50 into it. I made it serious overkill since I am paranoid about dumping the heavy SHO cruiser on the garage floor. Still have to carpet the bunks, clean up welds and prime/paint. I got the plastic 2 inch end caps as well. Will post more when done.

    Plasma cut the wheel pads with a $279 ebay cut 50 plasma cutter.

    Thanks. Its probably way overkill. But I just had visions of my SHO cruiser sitting on the garage floor. I see some of the dolly's being used or sold And I am amazed they are safe. But then again I look at the flimsy pieces on my trailer and they hold up going down the road at 60 hitting bumps. Oh well..better safe than sorry.

    The adjustable uprights is a great idea. I may change this setup to be adjustable later. Would be fairly easy.

    How did u attached the wood bunks to the steel? May do something very similar and use pre-drilled strut with holes in the uprights to slide strut up down inside the upright to make adjustable.

    I found with mine that removing the casters makes the stand a perfect height for working on the motor. I did use the big 8" casters though for this reason.

    The wood is not attached yet. I still need to carpet them. But the 4 steel angled pads will just get 4 hole drilled into each pad and I will use some kind of galvanized screw into the wood from the bottom up. I could sink the holes a bit and use carriage bolts too from the top. Ill decide this weekend when i finish it. Still need to clean the light rust off, clean welds, prime and paint as well.

    I did carriage bolt from the top side (countersunk) and it worked well. I put bolts in before carpeting... I also did two layers of carpet to soften them up a bit as the bunk carpet I got from amazon was pretty thin.
