    I posted these pics a couple of months ago.

    I finally got them painted, and I'm very happy with the finished result

    The slider tubes are 3/16" wall 2x4 tube. The steps I CNC routed out of 1/4" aluminum plate.
    I painted it all with Eastwood's Chasis Black paint in the aerosol can. Then I sanded the tops of the bowties.
    I hand painted the insides of the cutout K5. I've only done that on one side, not sure if I like that part yet.

    Thanks for the compliments guys.

    Steve, if I could have found cool running boards like yours; I would have jumped all over it. Instead I was forced to make due with what I could scratch together. /forums/images/graemlins/rotfl.gif
