    I have been working on this for the past few days. Few hours at a time. i built this expedition bed basket to sit along side my Pyranha Kayak - (see signature for kayak rack build). This basket was designed to fit onto my kayak rack with the kayak also mounted. These are just a few pics from the build so far. I have a few other things to do yet, and I will post more pics as they are available.

    the last pics i put up were of it painted. i am trying to locate a good army surplus box for the back half of it. the front half with have a gas can and possibly water container. my only problem is trying to find an good army box that is less than 13'' wide. i could only make the rack as wide as it is, in order for my pyranha kayak to fit on the rack at the same time. any ideas?
