I must say, I'm pleased with how it looks so far.
I know it's been a while, but it's done now.
Next will be to weld on the supports on the sides, then attach the boards to them.
I had previously welded up the side supports, but had to cut them back off as when I came to fit the boards I discovered I had welded them up all wrong.
Looking at the longer term weather forecast, it looks like I will have the timing of completing this just about right.
