Adding 15” to the frame:
We made some 4x 2.5x 3/16 rec tube (cut and welded 4x2), used 2” and 3” 3/16th plate for the sleeves that insert into the existing frame.

Mocking up the tub and checking the frame work. Things are working out very well to this point. Thanks Mike (aka- Wac) for driving in traffic 1 plus hours day after day to get this together, you the man!
