lookin good!! I love the metal framing for like you say.. plenty of room for wires, pipes, even insulation if you want things really quiet..

I havent delved into my stairs yet... im dsure they look just like yours! or worse..

lookin good! im interested to know what you coat them with.. as I am ready to get rid of the worn out rubber mat on mine.

Got the stairwell wall and handrail thing built. I'll cover with an upholstery panel soon. This frame was difficult, because of all the little connectors and features it needed.

Got the final design for the pneumatic door latch actuator. Tomorrow I'll add the inside handle.

Its neat having a latching, locking pneumatic swing door.

Sure, I'll get some tonight. I have to clean up my workspace mess in front of the bus to pull it forward enough so the door opens all the way.
