Default very rough sketch

Just a rough sketch of what I intend to do regarding the after brake assembly. This would be made out of heavy stock and bars to permit forming. I will add lengths of steel rectangular of adequacy to the form to justify the rigidity needed for that particular form.

Looks like a great project...will be watching for pics. I would like to suggest maybe a video clip of it in action. I do all my little video clips with a Flip Ultra-HD...around 135.00 on Amazon. These little guys are so easy to operate and will upload directly from it's software to your youtube account..all FREE...except for the cam But I will still be very happy for even pictures.

In the forth pic with your best friend, is that a peening hammer under the end table? Talk about eat, drink, sleep sheetmetal. I like it, I will have one in my den today.

And I thought you guys were using an expensive unit to do the filming.
