Just because I was googling stabilizer to make sure I was identifying the part correctly. I'm at a slight disadvantage---until October.

So....TIG or bolt together?
Alum AD Rivet the angles on Stainless 1/4" bolt through with rubber bushing over stainless tube to keep them quiet and put a nylon nut on the bolt to make sure it stays put.

Why not jigsaw cut them out into barefoot cutouts with toes. That would really look cool...and be one of a kind!...maybe a product?

..wrong guess...not even close...notice the hole in the bottom? Keep guessing...I'll take a picture of the finished product and post it tomorrow.

Now this.... I like. When I get around to pads for the stabilizers, I will have to do something like that. If you are going to leave nothing but foot prints, they might as well be memorable.

This is a picture of the "cup mod". I mounted the stainless steel cup next to the doorway in my 19'and my stereo system to function as a docking holder for my Samsung Galaxy SIII. The cup has a hole in the bottom to plug in power to the phone to keep it charged and on the top is a phone jack plugged into the Aux stereo system input. Since I have an unlimited data plan I stream music from one of my favorite Pandora stations and can run music 24/7. I also have hundreds of songs saved to the phone in the case of a no-reception area. I also use the phone as a wifi hotspot for our portable devices and mounting the cup up high gets me the best local reception. It also serves as a phone and I can leave it in the cup while talking on the phone since the output sound is piped through the stereo. And I use some of the apps for camping like the timer for brewing coffee or as a wake up alarm. Pretty useful!

Nice! Umm If I was to make foot printed ones it would be dog prints...But I do not have a bridgeport machine ;( so making them would be time consuming. I suppose I could stack them and band saw to rough dimensions still be time consuming finish work so nahh no second income there for me ;(
