Auxiliary Shelf

Built a aux shelf out of abs plastic.
Mounts with a couple bolts to the top of my Madstad.
Good for GoPro or radar detector...

I like the flexibility of that mount. How do you plan to attach the GoPro or radar detector?
Are you going to drill mounting holes or something like Velcro?

Probably Velco
But it could be easily drilled out for a more permanent mount and maybe better theft protection.
If I screw it up or just want to change it out.....it's very easy to build another.
ABS is nice to work with and waterproof.

I used a couple samples of a very similar looking material (mine was from bathroom stall partitions) to make the attachment blocks for the top box.

Very easy to work with an strong enough for a lot of applications. I tapped mine and just threaded right into it. I did epoxy too, but I'm sure the threads would have held just fine.

I built it mainly for highway use just in case I want to mount my gGoPro and it seems to work pretty well
nice thing is it's not permanent and I'll probably take it off most of the time in the city

Nice work but I hope the GoPro won't vibrate too much. Good for the GPS for sure

I did a little test run with the GoPro the other night.
It seems to stay fairly steady except for when you're idling at a light.
