I'm hoping someone here might be able to assist me with a project I need to get done before spring. I am a storm spotter here in Wichita KS and I need to build a hail guard for my truck. I have a roof rack installed that I plan to secure this to. What I'm hoping to do is something like this:
I want to make this from 1.5-2" OD pipe. I've been searching for hours and can't seem to find weld in elbow hinges. Basically hinges that will won't open more than 180 degrees. They need to be really strong and take a whack from a hail stone the size of a softball. Then when I don't need it I can raise it up and secure it with some bungee cord. If anyone has any suggestions I sure would appreciate it.
