    [B]That's a great job, Ken. Did you mean that all the T joints are saddles? If so did ya use pre-formed or did ya cut 'em in yourself? [/B

    Rocky D, I cut ALL the saddles with an O/A torch. I used Shurcut collars and welded everything up with my Hobart Champion 16. I did have my buddies ( 2 of which you can helping me with the steps..haha) Ron, Roger, and Richard help me with the skybox as I only had 3 weeks to build it

    One more. This one of the skyboxes that is suppose to hold 45 people. During the rodeo, I counted about 80 up there with their ice chests. This one is Budweiser's. The floor is 14' off the ground and all of these sections are towed out onto the racetrack and set up one behind the other for each rodeo or whatever event they are needed. The flooring for all the sections is made out of 8" primed C purlins.

    Rock, yep, I can do them blindfolded. It took 3 months to complete. I'm patting myself on the back here, but I literally did 98 percent of all moving of materials, measuring, cutting , and welding of everything you see in these pics. And yes, I loved it, it was really hard work but, after being at a desk job for 28.5 years and just itching to retire and do just this kind of thing, I didn't mind it at all. You saw the announcer's box, right ? I did that after the bleachers. Took one month for that....
