I plumbed the thing in 1" as when I was running from the house to the garage thats what I buried. Anyway , the next item on the to do list was to make a jacket for " Natt "as I now call him.
My signmaker buddy turned me on to this stuff called polymetal. Its two light aluminum skins on each side of a 3mm plastic panel. After cutting to size I back cut the skin to allow for a fold . I used some small angle brackets and rivets to give the lid its integrity. This is what I ended up with. hopefully we can get some paint on it tomorrow and get this project in the done pile.
