    L3 rocket for a friend

    Soon I will be starting my scratch L3 build dedicated to a friend that passed back in May.Originally my plan was to spread some of his ashes by attaching a canister to the drogue SC so when it deployed it would pull a lid off and dispense the ashes,after some thought I wanted something I could give to his widow after the launch instead of an empty plastic 35mm film canister.What I would like to have made is something like a large blast cap but with a 1/8" thick oval flange base(2 holes either side to be bolted to bay plate),and 3-4" in height.I also would like to have some engraving* done on the side of the canister.Anyone that has the capabilities to make something like this or know where I could have it made,please post or PM.

    If you cuss,blow your horn,flip the bird...expect your wait to be longer in road construction.
