Well now I've reached another mile stone. The bottom section is now complete out side of walkway and light brackets of course. When I took it out of the jig I was totally impressed how strong this thing is! I just had to mount it on the machine to see how it looks.
Now only two more sections to goWhistle
Please bear with me as I haven't got the new camera figured out yet.:confused:

The metal work you have done on this thing is amazing, I would love to have your skills. By the way is that an e36 or e39 in the fourth picture?

Outstanding work again! Any chance we could get some pictures of how the boom mounts to the house? Thanks for the update, a nice early Xmas present for yourself!
