Build Session 18 (180 mins): Forward Battery Rack, Fabricating Supports

Yes, I finally finished the rear battery rack and am now working to complete the forward battery rack. When complete the rack will hold 32 160ah thundersky batteries or 8 Lead Acid batteries.
First I cut the 4 lengths of 2 inch flat bar for the four U supports...
Then I bent the four pieces into U shapes using the torch and a few clamps...

The four U supports are complete. They will be welded two on each side.

Then I cut and bent the two longitudinal supports.

And thats the next session I will weld them in place and finally be done with the rear battery racks!
