Thanks everyone for all the kind words.....I have an 8 month old girl too...can't wait till she is up and running around...then again I don't want time to go by too fast....which it always does no matter what.

For this weekend, I didnt' get as much done on the stand as I hoped. I had a lot of running around for parts and other red tape sort through. I did spend some time fitting together the rest of the gas system.....so I have most of the trips to the hardware store behind me....at least for this stage.

I received some galvanized metal sheets from a friend and turned them into the "floorboards" for the lower section of the stand. I measured and cut them all to fit today....although my craftsmanship didn't leave me to proud. Cutting long lines with a jig saw just seems to leave behind squiggly cuts no matter how many clamps and fences you use. My "shop" is pretty limited in tools...so I did the best I could.

Next I will be pulling them off the stands...smoothing out the edges and painting them. Paint will be the same color as the stands. I will attach them to the frame with some stainless self tappers. This will give easy access to the entire gas manifold and spark modules which will be mounted just below.

See ya next time!!!

OK....so I worked on getting the needle valves mounted and the gas system plumbed in this weekend. The valve mounting was a challenge for me to figure out...being they are not panel mount valves. Once I found the copper pipe hangers it was very simple....they worked out perfectly....and look cool too.

The brackets were something I had on hand and are fixed to the frame with self tapping screws. We have tried to "re-purpose" as much "on hand" stuff as possible...to save some nickels and dimes.

Instead up using soft copper for everything, we used gas hose from the propane. I already had the barbed fittings on hand so it made it easier to plumb and added no extra expense for the fittings.

Just the rest of the pics of the progress. Still have some plumbing to snug up, then I can wire up the Ignition modules. Then I can flip the stand over and start wiring.

Getting closer!!!
