shovel under hood

so go get your small shovel...you know the 3.5 footer...go grab it...put it across thos two bars that run the length of hood vertically....lay the shovel across horiziontally. bungy cord it tight and there you go...a shovel.. outta site.. and very functional...

its come in handy a few times in the past and im sure it will see some use down the road..

cost:
cost of the shovel : 7 bux
cost of bungy cords: beats me..i had some laying around so i used them..

if i had to guess....15-20 bux

Doesn't it heat up. I've seen people put the hi lift in there and they have to let them cool down before they can use them.

Get foldable shovel, fold, place in trunk, problem fixed...
I have one and although its not a real shovel, its better than using your hands or putting a shovel basically on top of your engine. Just my .02

I have two of those foldables and they are better than nothing, but Im definately using this guys idea cuz a REAL shovel is MUCH better than those latrine models. Thanks Gutie!

I agree but a cold shovel is better than a steaming one.

That depends on whats steaming ;D

I like the 'warm shovel for snow' point, but I doubt I'll ever get to play in the snow

For about 1.2 seconds until the shovel turns ice-cold.

You could then just re-install it under the hood and let the engine run for a couple of hours to warm it back up

well i wont be able to get pics for alittle bit now... but its easy to visualize(lemme see if my friend has his digi)

as close to the firewall as you can get...
on the two bars the run the lenth of the engine compartment
sitting on top of it is the shovel...
i have the head over the battery...
i have them bungy down tight....
it doent rattle. it doesnt slide. its on there real good. it really doesnt move.
i havent notived any problems with heat when using it...

i just open the hood, undo it, use it...


i'll tell ya'll what...next time i drive up to cleveland(2 hours) soon as i get in i'll open the hood and feel how hot it really gets.
