2012 Volvo S60 T5: Operation Dog Transport
May 18, 2012
This previous weekend I blasted up to NorCal and picked up my new dog. Being 4 months old, he wouldn't be trusted on the fine luxurious leather, so a canine transport crate had to be used. Of course our Explorer, Quest or new Impreza would have been better for this, but we had to make due.
Problem was that the crate wouldn't fit through the rear doors, so a little tinkering had to be done.
Step 1: Dissembled crate into two halves and removed door.
Step 2: Rotated bottom half 90˚ clockwise and laid across back seat.
Step 3: Rotated top half 90˚ clockwise and fit through door opening on bottom half.
Step 4: Laid top half inside bottom half.
Step 5: Rotated top half 180˚counter clockwise to place on top.
Step 6: Attached door and hardware.
On a side note - the total milage for the trip - 940 miles with a 27.492 overall MPG.
