A few more pics, the Tl cuts are finished, just did a mock up to get the idea.
The challenge has been met, detacbale stat panels, done. Thanks to my friends here. will post more as i can, woking 65+ hrs a week and trying to provide the best information is tough.

here are a few pics of the stators mock up, just to give an idea, 45"tall, 20' wide and a pedestal or mount to the Tl, there is also an electronics box that will be out of sight but very easy to get to. As this was held together with tape, the final will have to be done when the stats are coated and mounted.

the pedastal is about 11' long, will be mounted atop the TL, but with a large floor space can stand on its own., with all the electronics still in the stat, nice and neat.
You will also see a 45 degree notch "in" for the top of the stat, this will have to be notched as soon as the panels are done. due to the highth and just general measurements, some more cutting useing an over arm radial saw,
The other pics should speak for them selves, just mocked up right now. I need some rest and I hope this inspires anyone else, its really not that hard, just alot of patience, listening to different people and different ideas and settling on your own. Wish me luck!
You will also notice the poly fill for the TL, this is a must have due to paralell surfaces and more phase canceling as the stats are Di-pole.
There are many other comments on the pics, but it is another work week, so,,, take a look, tell me what you think.

all of the finger points will be routed with 3/4" to smooth all edges.
The others are bracing and support. Each tower will weigh about 200lbs, so bracing is very important. With that said, good night everyone, i have had a very long week.
Thank you Charlie for your time and engineering on this, you deserve the credit. ^_^
very happy.Later

need some advice on "de greesing" these stats. I have a 2200psi pressure washer, with a solvent pick up line. This might sound a little weird, but what about using engine cleaner, and then cleaning it with the pressure washer? since it is steel and prone to rust, i posted a pics that had a big red scuffer that i used to prep surfaces for rhino. As soon as i remove any oil from the panels, i will have to coat it with something.
Just to the point. what kind of primer spray can i use to put a light coating to prevent rust? maufaure name and brand, or "what did you use"?
Things are coming together, and this the most important, so advice is what i am seeking, sincerely, Mav
