That looks great!

The toughest part for me was getting the tray all set to slide into the cabinet. There are notches on each of the four corners to slide the tray in. Once the front corners engage the tray, it's held up and solid. My prize ramp was installed after the tray and just has screws holding everything together so it comes apart easily.

Great Job!
I'm a late arriver but enjoyed reading on your progress...
Did I miss it or did you post the plans somewhere for the cabinet you built?

Hi. Do you still have any of the old ‘Digger’ mechs. If so, are any of them for sale? Many thanks, Rob.
