I’d probably see if I could stuff it in a small vehicle like a snowmobile or 4 wheeler…
Alternately, could always use it to make a hydraulic Pick N Place, add a generator and you’d be able to power the electronics for it, the soldering oven, the stencil machine and the disco inspector.
This thread is why I like shopping at Sparkfun… The folks behind your order, folks.

“Real Companies” as you define them, would probably not be doing Dumpster Dive, and probably would constantly appear out of stock on even large stock items because the items would not be available.

No online business does reserved item carts because it can be abused, many don’t show inventory, and just mark the items ‘backorder’ without a timeframe for reorder, or quantity ordered.

Any time you encase an RF transmitter in a shell of conductive material, you will form a Faraday Cage, I suggest getting an XBee with an external antenna, and drilling a hole for the antenna mount to go through this case.
I would suggest using an XBee with uFL antenna, a UFL to SMA adapter cable and various SMA antennas that’d work well for various XBee related projects, as that’d let you just drill a hole where practical and place the XBee where practical..

Under X-CTU, you can set each pair of devices to it’s own PAN ID (car1, car2 or similar) and they will treat devices of the other PAN (Personal Area Network) as a different network then their own, and ignore it. This ID is also used by SSID for Wifi modules. This can also be done with AT commands.
