Does any one know where to get an inexpensive flag pole holder to run three full size flags for parades to add to my wing? Or plans on building one? I seen plans to build one using PVC pipe, but wanted your input. Any help would be great.

Inexpensive flag holders? I don't thing they exist. The PVC pipe idea would be doable. Rocket launcher style. Maybe mount them to a piece of 1x6 oak. Groove the board to fit the rear bumper rails if you have the double rail bumper. Then on the backside have another piece of oak and just thru bolt the two pieces together with wing nuts and carriage bolts. Since it would be for low speed use it would be quick on and off.

- You only need two tools in life - wd-40 and duct tape. If it doesn't move and should, use the wd-40. If it shouldn't move and does, use the duct tape!

That was for a local 4th of July parade, and they were held on with lots of bungees and tons of nylon wire ties. I never got faster than about 5 mph in the parade, and when I hit 15-20 mph on the way home, the drag and flapping from that huge flag got kind of scary, so I slowed it down. Definitely not a long-term solution!
