101 things to do with expanding foam filler
Let's start with two things. The Mopar tow-bar receiver does nothing for aerodynamics and off-road it becomes a mud scoop. I taped over the end of the ball-mount to act as a seal, inserted it into the receiver then squirted a bit of expanding foam into the other end of the receiver. If the quantity is judged just right, it makes quite a neat job.
For those that have been using milk bottle crates to hold gas bottles, you might want to try this. I used an old Ikea toy box as the former. Line it with glad-wrap. Place a pressure pack can lid on the bottom to support for the bottle off the bottom of the box. Tape over any catch points on the gas bottle and line with glad-wrap. Place the bottle centrally into the box and onto the pressure pack can lid. Empty a whole can of expanding foam into the box evenly around the gas battle. Leave for a couple of days at least to set. Give the bottle a good hard twist to break any adhesion or catch points and remove. Remove the formed foam from the box. Voilą, you have a very light yet sturdy gas bottle holder but it's not exactly pretty.
