That really looks good. I would agree with cutting some out, I think that it would look better. Keep up the good work.

Well I haven't abandoned this all together. This time of the year free time is at a premium. I have been hit and miss building the brackets for the side guides and I finally finished them last night now I just need to weld the to the trailer. The boat can come back off at that point and I can get on with painting and wiring it. So I might have an update with pics tonight after the wife gets back from yet another shopping trip. #-o

Finally I have over come building the stupid guide ons. I know I have over complicated these things but I built them the way I had them in my head. and finally I finished welding them on and attached the boards.

Photos of course.

Arms/ uprights, whatever you want to call them. I took forever building these stupid things, I don't know why, but I did.

Welded on and all finished up. I hope they have enough clearance once they are carpeted.

Can you say 10lbs of crap in a 5lb bag? Its supposed to rain a butt load tonight and I just didn't have the energy to tarp it back down and I didn't want to leave the Jeep out. I had no idea it would all fit until tonight. :-k

The uprights look great, and I don't think you'll have any problem with them flexing. 8) . Also, nice big building you have there, but I feel the need to point something out, and that would be that the Flag hanging on the back wall is backwards. Stars go on the left side. :wink: :USA1:

Thanks for the flag etiquette (I mean the sincerly). I always do that, it will be changed today.

Shop is 30'x30' and still isn't big enough, and its also on its second life already. This happened 3 years ago.

Made me ill before I saw it. The wife and I were out of town, my Mom called when she took my kids to the house. I puked just from hearing it. There is a ton more to this story maybe I'll post it in the watering hole.

I do believe it would make me sick also just hearing about and trying to visualize how bad it is.

OK the boat slid right off no problem so here it is, pretty well finished on the construction stage. Still lots of finish stuff but the biggest part is done now.
