Nicely done. Using the concrete piers was a good idea.

looks great, Svenole! I would consider putting a temp. roof. If you buy some 1 1/2" pvc pipe, and anchor these into the cup ends, you can form an arch, then cover it with a green tarp. I did this recently to park a car in. The whole $ thing was under 200 dollars. Great job on the form.

Sven,

I would suggest that you put in some diagonal braces betwixt the legs, because once you start bending the 3/8" and the sheer you get some pretty strong push back.

It is great to see you getting something started to put that motor on! :wink:

Well, I would have to say you have started with a bang.

Remember, we are all addicted to pix. So keep them coming and to keep them coming means you have to keep working. No slacking now.
