And finally, my 7 foot stand is almost ready. with the exception of 1/2 ply on top plus styro foam. and that will be later on to add.







And thats it for now for this one. and start all over again for the 8 footer.

You add support on the outside of the end legs. Nice. That will be a crazy strong stand. Good job bud.

Default Thanks Walt

Thank you guys for viewing this thread.

Walt, weather here in CB/Omaha metro is getting warmer. I do a lot of riding in around spring time towards early summer. why do you think my project is taking a while to finish this up? Go ahead start to fire up that V twin engine buddy.

Anyway, here are the latest. I finally finished the 8 footer stand.

And started to paint my background black. just like my 8 footer background. still debating if I have to put 3D background on these tanks. I do have one in hand from design by nature.






3D background.
