Rear Panel tubes are done

The rear panel tubes are done.  I decided to use 1" square instead of the 3/4" round.  I hope that doesn't bite me later.  The way I made the top rail was to cut one stick to length.  Then I marked out where the radius of the bend would be and cut out three sides of the tube.  I cut a piece of wood into a pie shape with the crust having the right radius.  Then bend the tube around that, cut up some sheet steal to box it back in and welded it up.
