Default #3 Stretching the frame

I extended the frame, and using a tubing notcher, made angled reinforcements that I welded into the frame extension. It is lightweight and extremely strong. Think of the oil derrick looking thing that you built in high school drafting class, and competed by putting weights on it until it finally collapsed. That's what this is. Those 45 degree angled reinforcements really strengthen the frame.
