This thing is sick!  I love it.  I'm not a member there but, aren't you documenting this over on Lay It Low as well?  It's so much easier to follow current builds on here with the chosen format.

When i started it i was trying to make each pipe out of one piece of styrene tubing but found that cutting it in different lengths,making the bends then marking n gluing them together was a lot easier n looks better
