Stake hole plugs - must read

OK guys i am pleased to say I no longer have a hole in my......well you know!!!!

The stake hole plugs Dasgoob is making came today and they are awesome!!! Perfect tight fit, no one will steal them in a parking lot.

Gentlemen,

thanks for the kind words Russ.

Sending update on the flush style on the Stake Pocket Cover Thread.

Having fun and all.... just taking longer to make it all work. Printer occasionally will lose its way.... which means start over. Learning as we go.

Let me know if you are interested.

Second, and more importantly, I have a switch that occupies the hole on one of the stake pockets form inside the bed. The wiring sticks in the stake pocket and I wanted to shield it from water and crap, even though what I have is essentially spray proof. This seals that pocket off. I like the look and it makes me happy. No other reason.

Grubicon,

It is one buddy of mine with a 3D printer doing this on his down time at home. Trying to get him to print them out continuously, but someone has to be present when they are printing in the event the head clogs or something similar. So, I don't want to crack a whip on him. :)

Right now there are 7 people in queue. The next person is going to be @CRAIGER. Now that the design is pretty solid and settled, hopefully he can start bumping them out a bit more and everyone can get them in a timely manner. Sorry for timing being tough, but doing our best at the moment. :)

I would guess a couple of weeks.
@CRAIGER, please send me your address and email via private message or email, and go ahead and send Pay Pal ($25) and we will get a set out to you soon. Let me know if you have changed your mind so we can move on to the next, which is @trlboss .

No problem brother! I'm a Coastie stationed up here in Michigan on the CGC Mackinaw. I'm on an ice breaker this tour but when I was on the Spencer out of Boston and we would be out on patrol down in the Caribbean or south of the equator and we knew when you guys were around. We could always here your sonar echoing of the hull as we laid in our racks at night.
My cousin and a really good friend of mine were both also nukes. Now they work in nuke plants in the civilian sector.
