Don, I just didn't like the stamped plate cheap stuff with which they joined the boards of the engineered beams. I don't intend to hoist a lot of weight off them but I'd rather be safe.

You are giving John a run for his money for the shop of the year award, Frank.

Thanks. Actually it isn't chromed. I was the Chief of Flight Standards, Ft Carson/4th Division in the early 80s. When I was reassigned my crew got one and stripped the paint off then polished it up to look like chrome then mounted it with the plaque. It is one of my most cherished possessions. Although I am Cobra rated I flew the "6" in Nam and threw more C4 that Van Diesel or Rambo!!

Rack is off. Thanks to the Atlas lift it was simple. Now it has been disassembled and is ready to package for shipment to some lucky ROFer.

The other two pictures are of a truly happy camper. We are finally at a stage of turning wrenches again. ----Moab, FMCA, Oct 16!
