So.. my idea worked ! ...Now for the belly of the beast !
A hole was cut and scrap plastic formed the beginnings of the base for the fitting..
A platform was built up...
More angles were added fore and aft to help spread any sheer loading..
The fitting in place..
Not sure if I'll leave the nut on... or just epoxy it into place..
Anyhoo... that's an idea to play with... for now, it's back to the base and finishing it up.
Tune in next time kids to see what silliness we can get up to !!
