I wasn't familiar with the name unistrut, did a quick search and found it is for "light structural support" Since water weighs over 8 pounds a gallon, it may not be the best material, unless you have a lot of it and it's free.

there are actually many different sizes, and widths of unistrut. they use it in buildings for seismic support and for running large pipes. the pieces of it they have running stuff at my work are pretty beefy, thick steel, its actually called superstrut, which is the same kind of stuff,but by a different company

your right, and to top it off, im dedicated to covering every tiny spot of yellow. i spent a couple of hours touching up the area between the black window gaskets and the frame. the blue tape was hiding some yellow there. i used some rustoleum in a cup and an artists brush.

Dan, i have been thinking about that as well. but if i do the wheels Almond, wouldn't it look fumy if the grill, bumpers, and rub rails were not also almond? or could i get away with leaving them black?
