    Home depot carries something very similar in their welding section. Little more money - 9.97 at mine. Used to hold welding rods

    Well, mine are in place. I bought them from the local John Deer dealer. Price was a bit over $10 per, and for the life of me, after trying every solvent I know of, can't seem to remove the graphics. One currently has a fire extinguisher and some chain lube, and the other 28oz of engine oil and a small roll of duct tape. Gerry

    Take care my Friend.........

    One on each side of the Cyclerack:







    Universal adhesive remover takes the yellow print off without damage to the plastic.

    You need to put some LEDs on the back of those storage tubes- JATO Bottles man.

    Just a note: "Goof-Off" is the best chemical to remove the yellow paint from the tubes. It works on contact with little rubbing required.

    #2 for Goof-off took the graphics off in less than a minute if memory serves.

    HenryJ how did you attach your tubes to the cyclerack? Your install looks pretty clean.

    Gonna have to look into this - Looks like a great idea. I'll have to review the mounting threads however...

    From the smell of goof-off, I believe the primary solvents are Toluene and xylene.

    Carb cleaner, brake cleaner, Berryman Chemtool B-12 are solvents I have used to remove that yellow lettering from them.

    Acetone would probably work but I haven't tried it.



    You can scuff them then prime with a plastic primer and then paint them as well.



    They now carry two sizes of these manual cannisters at Agri Supply.
