              Fabulous job, I like it. I agree with Migman on the one of a kind fab job, thats why the small stuff I make, I never make 2 alike, each one is different in its own way. This is what makes our job special, a lot of people don't want that standard look of things from China or fake metal as I call it.

              As far as loading your pictures, change the settings on your camera to the lowest resolution setting which I believe is 640 x 480. You can also resize your pictures in a photo program that you already have on your computer.

                    Acid etch primer?

                    What exactly is the acid etch primer and how is it applied? I am a general contractor and I am always interested in neat finishes. Gate is really nice and a perfect match for the stone opening.

                      its just your basic automotive primer,with an acid etching agent that makes it stick to the metal
