Thanks Kerry

It's fun but time consuming.They are a 2 step with a merge.
2 1/4-2 3/8-2 1/2. After I tack #2 tube, I'll move over to the drivers side.
I'm sure the steering shaft will be a serious pain and nerve racking.

If it ain't broke, you can't fix it no matter how hard you try!

Yes that steering shaft is a serious pain. #5 and #6 were easy
compared to #7 & #8 :evil: #5 is tacked, I just about got #7 figured out tonight. It's frustrating enough trying to get the tubes clocked correctly.
Then I have to figure out to get the steps the right length without getting the tube too long :!:
After I get #7 tacked I get more pictures up.Thanks for the complements.
