Good to see you make progress Len

In that last pic though - I can't help wondering how they are going to finish making that piece without a LOT of PT (and a nice headache from welding the galv.) There are MUCH easier ways to make that from two (or three) pieces that will need much less welding and give a smoother curve, and hence less bodge after....

That's very good progress and glad to see that you're doing it right.

Well done, good luck!
