That looks very well built but it will be heavy. This is what a fatboy looks like with the outer skins and insulation removed

I'm doing this for my cousin because the site wouldn't let him post for some reason. Here is what he said about the stacks.


To answer the two stacks question, I did that for uniform airflow because I stretched it wider than the original plans. The insulation is Roxul brand available at Lowes. It is a fat boy clone, but 36" wide with 2" insulation.
