Wrapped up the diamond plate bending today. Off to powdercoat.

Should make that center stringer a bit more comfortable to walk on.

Wrapping 1/4" alum plate takes a bit of trial and error.

The Big metal brake angle looked good on cardboard, but proved to heavy on the actual geometry skills. Plus it left creases on the outside at every bend line. Being I've never seen creases in any other stand off boxes, knew we were using the wrong tool. So we switched to the Big smoke wrench [my original plan] and some C-clamps, that stuff rolled right around the end plates pretty darn quick.

Hit all the big runs with a wire gun. Tomorrow will switch back to tig setup to get those edges the gun wouldn't reach. But at least they are wrapped. And yes I remembered to include a drain plug hole..

Getting closer. Just need to cut the top holes out and weld the bottom plates on. Then I'll mock one up with a transom assembly and see how well my math was..

Am really happy with way the wrap and welding turned out.

Yep, it’s been an epic story, much of it beyond me but interesting all the way.
Thanks KT for posting and Aussie Dave for his support on the whole project.
