Some progress today. A bit of work on the right side midpipe allowing a mock-up to wet my appetite.
Held together here with a bungie cord and duct tape - pretty sure that's what the pros do when building them
Note the seat is just sitting on top and not slotted into position thus sitting a bit high.

After seeing this in position I've another idea for the alloy end caps......

Next step complete the mid pipe, tack it together and fab a mounting bracket.

Then start on the other side ........

    Looking good Allan.
    Are you working to a (modified) existing design (e.g. Mivv) or is this a total AB original?

    The original plan was a long reverse cone set-up, but it's been pretty 'fluid' and is close to the MIVV set-up now. Which is cool as I do like their X-Cones.
    I've a pile of cardboard end-caps of different styles I've played with - I'll need to decide soon as I'll need them!
