Rocket[box]eer

2 Jun

So in the interests of hauling all our gear for the next two months in a less claustrophobic manner (the back of the Forester being taken up by the cat cage, and the Mazda5 having little cargo room to begin with), I picked up an older model Yakima Rocketbox to go on the roof rack my mother-in-law got us a few years ago.   It looks like this one, but obviously with a different car and with different posts.

The newer boxes are all black or silver (such as the Thule box already on our Mazda 5, a necessity for carrying the double stroller, etc).  White’s not such a bad idea for people moving to sunny, hot Virginia, but it does conjure images of stormtroopers.
Which brings me to the question.  As someone with a bit of spare time now, some leftover spraypaint and masking tape that isn’t worth moving, and a constant desire to fiddle with things: what do you think?  Stormtrooper or clonetrooper theme, or jaws/nose art ala WWII planes?

    I vote for stormtrooper. It can eventually be an excuse to drive it in the DragonCon parade one year.

    I like the shark face WWII airplane idea, it makes sense with the shape of those things.

    Maybe a storm trooper with shark teeth?
