Default Who wants a Pit Pal?

I am going to start making these if anyone is interested, please let me know. I am still trying to figure out the carrying straps, but here's a few pics of the first one.

I guess my first question is what should be a good asking price for something like this. I can custom make any size, holes, etc per order also.

I will be checking back, im interested as well, great idea man, maybe you get a tentative price out there, with a notion maybe less or more<dependant on sales> try to get a pre-commitment,say pre-sell 10, figure your cost,time,and go from there, you can make attractive by also doing a first time promo,like 10 bux or so cheaper, on first run production only, Food for thought. What are they weighing in at?

My brain is still spinning...I'm trying hard to get the whole thing done by tomorrow so I can start moving these. I'm thinking about putting lifting straps like this (they won't be duct taped on)...







Thanks for looking.

Im in for $40, maybe more if i had too lol. One suggestion though and this by no means is to say i dont like the carrier because i love it but what about closing the square end of the box on the fuel bottle end? Just a thought, but still LOVE IT!
