After completing my 1st custom Giro-z Bridge I was given the opportunity to manufacturer an improved version I learned a lot of fabrication lessons on mine that will hopefully make this one easier to build and perfect right out of the gate.

First build


To begin with, I order 90% of this stuff from Amazon simply because it was more cost efficient. I'm sure i could source these materials locally but the enormous amount of time i spent attempting this the 1st time has led me to Amazon where you can buy just about everything, competitive pricing and free shipping for Prime members. I will update this materials list as they are purchased.

Materials:
Aluminum 6063-T52 U-Channel, Square Corner Style, AMS QQ-A-200/9, ASTM B221, 1/8" Thick, 2" Base Width, 2" Leg Length, 36" Length - $25.29

Loos Cableware SL2-4P 25 Piece Zinc Plated Copper Crimping Sleeve Set for 1/8" Diameter Wire Rope - $13.14 box of 25

Cables To Go 27267 Shielded Cat5E Molded Patch Cable, Red (25 Feet/7.362 Meters) - $11.20

Krylon Indoor/Outdoor Satin Black - $3.98 (already have)
