Here's a few pics of mine. I only boxed it in like 5" in front of and behind the notches, just for some extra strength pretty much... If ya have time, it'd be easiest to make a cutout of the piece that needs to be cut with like posterboard or cardboard.. Just trim it til it fits exactly like ya want it then trace it onto a steel sheet and cut it out. I didnt do that tho, I just made like 3 measurements, one on each side and one in the middle (measuring heights) and cut it... I grinded it to make it fit in nicely, but it works... Anyways, here they are:







btw, I grinded mine down to make em smooth, if ya cant tell hehe.

A torch would be nice... whats one cost? With tank or whatever else is needed...
Well a setup like mine is around 100 for each of the 2 regulators and about 100 for each tank.You could problay work a deal with a local welding shop though cause thats what i did.I think i got 100 in my whole setup.

I used a piece of 4" c-channel in the back to box in the frame in the back, so I think I'm going to use that to box in the frame around the notch.
