Hey Guys,
From a rough cut cardboard , to a piece of aluminum .
This looks like a good base to start with .

Hey Guys ,

It fits good, I will add more aluminum to this base and connect it to each side (Somehow)
I'm thinking I might not need the bracket that I made earlier

.
Still looking for 6061-T6 sheet metal in .032...But shipping is a killer....I actually thought the shipping estimator at the web site went berserk.
So I called...My 4ft X 4ft piece weighed 7lbs. Cost was $93 bucks...... SHIPPING WAS $230.00 ....Total over $300 for a 4X4 sheet ?
I need to stop by while I'm in the cities , Then it's $93
.
Meanwhile, I started looking at the front area.
Here's some paper mock-up pictures.
