Default Yet another never ending RIMS build with ???'s

So I've started building a single tier brewstand after brewing a little less than a year ago. I've got a few PM and AG batches under my belt and want to have more and better beer so here I am. I have the frame built for my sculpture and now have a bunch of questions. The plan for the sculpture is 3 kegs,single tier, RIMS, one pump, & disco's. Thats the basics. As of right now I have one of the 2 banjo burners tacked in place and it took about 7 gallons water from 100 to boiling in about 20 mins with no windscreen and it was about 35 degrees out. Is that about normal I have nothing to base it on? The regulator for the burners is a 0-30PSI bayou classic.Also I wasn't prepared for how hot the stands get. It got me thinking, do I want to mount my black pipe to the top of the stand like I had planned or do I not want the pipe to get hot? The next major thing is how to mount the RIMS tube. It is a little longer than my stand is wide so mounting it length wis is out, is vertical with a hanger a decent option? Either way pics would be good for me. I'll try to post pics of my progress later tonight after work
