The $30 HD oil pan...

...is so worth it.

I was going to cheap out and use my existing automotive catch pan but there'd be no room for fingers or tools.

2001 Road Glide FLTRI. Pipes & a lot of chrome...

The 7 quart Rhino Gear round oil pan from Advance Auto cost $2.99. It works great!

I used a metal paint roller pan, until I got tired of spilling oil when I drained it.

In theory, Theory and Reality are the same. In reality, they are different.

I dig a hole in the neighbors yard,.. drop my oil, then push it back to my garage.

For a wounded man shall say to his assailant,
'If I live, I will kill you. If I die, You are forgiven.'
Such is the rule of honor.
