Do you need to make a flare? Not sure how that's going to look with square tube. Could be real nice if you do it post on here and let me know how it ends up.

Look good. But why did you use galvanized? Is that electrical conduit from the hardware store or something? I almost cheaped out and did that when I made mine.

Also, I love the sig line!

Yep, plenty of pics of the process in the build thread. Here's how it turned out.
