rallyart made a post in this thread: Connecting bronze and stainless pipe fittings?
That is 304 Stainless and it should not be affected by the bronze or brass it is in contact with but it may cause some increase in the corrosion in the bronze. That's more important if you are in brackish or salt water. I would put connect it in...

The Chubby is rock solid and a bit taller than many others. If you like that tower's looks you will never have an issue with it. Some other towers fold down lower if garage door height is an issue.

rallyart made a post in this thread: Supra SE towing question

rallyart made a post in this thread: Cleaning vinyl seats
A brush makes a huge difference. I just use a nylon hand held scrub brush like you might have for a kitchen. A toothbrush is too soft to get the dirt in the vinyl patterning. I love the 303 protector but have found their cleaner to be poor. I ...

rallyart made a post in this thread: What type of Sumbrella fabric to buy
My Sumbrella bimini is black and red. The air an inch below the black is substantially hotter than the air under the red material. If it were me, I would avoid dark colors. You might want to avoid red also as that usually fades quicker than ot...
