Yeah I'm happy w/ it. I could have had a steadier hand on the top cut. But that's a loong radial run with a jig saw. :-)

Yep... and it looks like you listened to us and are installing them before smashing the rails all to hell. Should make installing them MUCH easier.

You doing the welding yourself?

Thanks gentlemen! Really looking forward to having these fully installed. The welder will be my brother and the machine is my uncle's so I figured I could at least get most of the grunt/dirty work knocked out.
