    Looks really good. Did you sew it yourself?

    That looks really great. I love all the thought and planning you are putting into your rig. You so often see half assed, slapped together projects that look like they were glued together by a kindergartener. Your work is very professional and clean. It is very inspirational. Keep up the good work.

    Decided I didn't like the first cover as I'd made it a bit short at the ends.... so, here's version 2.... much better

    Hi Andy, I hope you are still monitoring this thread. I have a few questions. What type of bushes did you use for the pivots? What size pipe did you use on the pivots and what size RHS did you use for the A frames?

    Thanks in advance.

    Just noticed this reply.... the RHS was 3/4" sq, the pipe was 1" I think & I had the bushes turned up at the local m/c shop out of nylon.

    Looks great Andy ! I was considering trying to build something like this out of pvc pipe to keep the wait down and well I don't weld so it would be hard to make it out of steel.
