Owner wanted the front rail to be removable, so I made thes 1/4" thick pads so the upright rail can weld to and bottom be drilled and tapped for bolts.

Looks great. Can'y wait to see the finished product. I like the all aluminum builds. Are you mig welding it or tig welding. What are you using for the framing, looks like angle. Is it 2x2x.125 or 1.5x1.5x.125?
