H King cargo

After much conceptualizing of how to make the handle/camera mount out of carbon fiber, it was decided to just extend the coroplastic.

While the coroplastic on the Ruckus came from storage boxes from 17 years ago which had long been discontinued, it turned out Home Depot still had coroplastic sheets. It cost $14, a lot more than it did 17 years ago. After much experimenting with string & adhesives to bond it, OSH turned out to still have reusable zip ties. All the coroplastic would be held together by zip ties.

After many agonizing measurements, the new cargo container was done. Every effort was made to document the relative sizes of the 3 vehicles before the Ruckus was torn down. At 10" x 7" x 5", the lunchbox has 315-350 sq in, roughly equal to the H King. The H King can't haul as much mass as the lunchbox.

While the H King looks much bigger than the Ruckus, it's only 1" wider & can't be filled any higher than the Ruckus. The extra material is manely the handles & more durable bumpers. Experience proved the container constantly runs into things & people, so it needs strong bumpers.

The new coroplastic was 4mm thick while the old coroplastic was 3.1mm thick. It's so much more massive, the bumpers may be replaced by plastic sheets.

Since the Ruckus had a dying servo & differential, the decision was made to tear it down & reuse its electronics in the H King. There were a lot of memories in the 17 months of driving the Ruckus around, but at the rate rent is increasing, if you can't double your salary every year, you have to throw out half your stuff.
