Yeah, I agree, that's the way I wanted it originally, but I couldn't figure out how to mount them better. Trunk was too small and the attaching ends aren't flat or the same on the tube. Kind of hard to describe. I don't know what the tubes are meant to attach to, but a flat surface it ain't.
The caps aren't coming off in a hurricane though. There's like 3" of threads and they're tight as hell with a rubber grommet to boot. I'm only going to keep light stuff like rain gear and shit like that in there. As I was thinking about it tonight, I'm not sure it would take a lot of weight.
You outed me. Faux tool tubes. They still look like afterburners though.
