I always thought there was some kind of spiritual connection between Maurice White and some street called White Avenue. Actually, that's entirely untrue, I didn't even know his name until they announced on the radio that he had made the jump to Electric Kingdom two nights previous.... but in any case, I found this cast iron brake rotor on the side of White ave. which had his initials on it, so I figured he probably wanted me to make a microphone stand since it's already the correct size, shape, and weight for a base.

The finishing touch for the trailer was to add a rear light for nighttime usage. I found this light at a garage sale which had a 1/4"-20 thread mount, so I figured I could bolt it onto the trailer frame. I decided to tap a 1/4" thread into a 3/8" bolt for this. I figured I might as well use my most messed up bolt since the external threads weren't going to be used anyhow.

Now that the trailer is in working condition, the first assignment was to get the rest of the metal to complete it. Conveniently, the metal store had the exact size piece of aluminum I was looking for to make the cargo bay.

For the deck, I cut some pieces of wood. Initially, I used carriage bolts to attach it, but decided I was going to add a cargo bay below it, so the deck should be readily removable.
