kiddin aside.. i HAVE to get that slab poured. Aint no way im dealing with rollin this one around on plywood to get inot the pit. Its nearly 7 foot high and 3 foot wide. Makes it top heavy. I have already had one fall over and it aint purdy. Part of the new design will be foldout outriggers to prevent it from tipping over when I move it. Easy to do, just a piece of angle mounted to the the bottom frame that folds against the lower shelf with a piece of 1/2 inch steel welded downward about an inch short of the ground. When your rolling it, move them 90 degrees out. if it starts to tip, the outrigger will stop it.

Wheelie bar mod. :)
The moving co. would agree with its ease of tipping over. I say build the next one wider. More stable and less tippy. You may also want to bury some threaded rod in the concrete and bolt that farker down.
