I was going to ask if it was insulated at all. Looking at it seems there's not enough room from the inside to the outside for insulation.

Will do, I just have to figure out how to get to where I can work on it. Now I know what the guy that built it meant when he said it was hard to move around.

Got some ribs on today for a trial run. I am liking how these keep temp so well.

It doesn't have to be welded in place. If you can't get it on it's side you could attach the bottom with rivets or self tapping screws.

I think that would be much easier. I don't know how I could get this on its side and back up without is slipping. I do have a skid steer that I could maybe hook some straps up to and weld from underneath but I still don't like the idea of being smashed by a 800 pounder.

I concrete screwed a block of wood to the floor as a stopper for the wheels cause my mini GF kept rolling away when I try to flip it on its side. Good thing about using concrete screws is I can remove them a lot easier than dyna bolts & all that's left is a hole. :kewl:

I may do that in conjunction with using a good ole chain pulley hoist that is in my garage. Hopefully that will work.
