aux fuel storage on a dime

well if your like me you like to be prepared, so on a trip its a nice safety blanket to have some aux fuel, looking online i came across this and this adding up to $39 i thought i could do a "bit" better, so i went to good will and got a couple metal water bottles ($1 each) and a couple of these from harbor crap($8 for pair on sale)

add some JBweld and vinyl i have laying around and a little time and bam aux fuel cans for almost 1/10 the price


the tubes were a bit longer then needed so i used my dremil with a plunge cut bit and cut about 3.5" out of the bottom section (use a hose clamp to get a even cut), then JB welded it back together.

i then added some vinyl to spice it up a bit (could paint them or leave them bright orange if you chose.)

i plan to mount them to the inside of rear pannier mounts once i make some.
