I have been making some progress still. I only manage to get about 1-2 hours a couple of times a week in the garage. I have the shelves made, mounted, and all the expanded metal in place. The last pic is of the firebox material that was delivered this week, some assembly required. The biggest problem I've been having is finding a common point of reference for measurements. I have several marked on the surface of the chamber, and also on the trailer frame, but keeping things straight and square is proving tricky. So far the farthest thing off is just under and 1/8" off of straight, so I figure I'm doing O.K. for an amateur. After a couple of suggestions here, I am definitely going to add a counterweight, or some type of lift assist before using it. I just have to figure out what type and what I want it to look like.
