Support lumber

lumber in back of car

We really appreciate all the helpful comments on the structual strength of our new IBC water tower.

The truck has been in the shop so we had to use the car to pick up some lumber to increase both support and bracing.

I could probably haul twice as much lumber if the back window could open and close.

Fold down back seat. Protection on top of the dash, then slide boards in through the trunk. I've gotten ten ft lumber home as such.
