    I found my cardboard versions had bent after a while and wanted a more permenant soloution so measured up and found the closest measuring c- channel styrene I could find which was 10”.

    I originally wanted styrene with an internal width of 10” to use on the 10” peg but couldn’t find it. Instead I found styrene that fit the 10” width of the socket and layered the styrene so it fit the depth. I used superglue to stick it together and added a coating of tape for extra stability and a tighter fit.

    The extension fits quite securely due to the socket I cut in that fits between the socket on the peg and on the lower legs of long haul. AA285033-E63C-4A86-8B6E-90CBFFA002C8.jpeg

    Damn, I wish someone would produce this. I've been wanting to boost this guy's height for years!
