CarCapsule customer Ray has a unique use for his BikeCapsule:

Hello CarCapsule,

I want to start by saying I have purchased your motorcyclecapsule and I really like it, but I do not use it for a motorcycle. About ayear ago, I spoke with someone at the CarCapsule facility, I believe he hadsaid he was the owner and I was asking what the smallest Capsule was. Iexplained I did not need it for a motorcycle even though I own several, Iwanted it to protect an engine that I was having built for my ’63 Chevy II. Ihad an engine in the car that I had spent a lot of money on the chrome andaluminum parts to dress the engine up and over several years it all tarnishedand was always covered with dust from siting in my shop (it had no hood on it)and only driving the car on occasion. I know you sell a very nice capsule theShowcase which I plan on purchasing once the car is complete this time. Once Ireceived the engine I had built, I knew it would be about a year before I gotthe other engine pulled, changed my whole front end and got the car painted soI thought why not get a CarCapsule and put the engine it to keep it lookinggood, especially since I had $18k in the engine with a lot of that for thealuminum blower and nice carbs , etc. I had mentioned what I was doing to thegentleman on the phone and he thought it was an interesting idea. So when Iopened the one I purchased I found the card that said you could win a gift cardfor showing how you used it to help solve storage problems. I have attachedsome photos of how I used it.

I built the frame out of schedule 40 PVC so that when Iunzip the capsule I just pick the front up and lay it on top then I put a pieceof material over the zipper to protect it and push my engine in to keep it niceand clean until I can get to it and install it. I will be making one change tothe frame, once I finished the frame and put it in I decided to change out thebrace at the top to 45 degree rather than the 90’s I have on it now, that wayit will not come in contact with the capsule at all. I get a lot ofpeople that like the way it works. I’m not sure if it would be something othersat bigger facilities would use to protect their motors prior to selling them,it would not have to be as long, the engine stand I have is a 2000lb stand soit is bigger than a standard one. Well that’s my story of how I used yourcapsule to better my life. And it just looks plain cool when people come in myshop and see it in the capsule. Plus it keeps hands off of it. You can look butyou can’t touch. I hope to hear back from you folks to get your thoughts on howI used it. I look forward to purchasing the Showcase in about a year to put thecar in.
