    Nick,
    That is a fine looking job. Is the owner not worried about his new rails rusting as they have no paint, only primer?

      Hi Nick. Thanks for the words. They elected to paint it to save money. I was going to deliver it bare but I went ahead and primed it for them at no cost and painted areas they couldn't get to in black as you can see...under base plates and underside of lower channel. A little cleanup with scotchbrite and paint and it will be fine.

        Well as usual your work looks great!!!! Doing things for your customers like priming and painting will make them repeat customers.

          good job

          Hey that looks really slick? I'm starting on 300 feet of the stuff in the morning! You say you have a punch?

            Yes, I have a hydraulic punch press I built about 10 or so years ago.

              The one I'm starting has some pretty bad concrete some old some new some with more fall than other. For the most part I'm gonna have to build it in place. Would you suggest dipping the weld plate in primer before bolting down?

                Primer is designed to provide "tooth" for the paint to adhere to. I would at least prime and paint base plates. If not, they will rust staining the concrete. Not very pretty. I have even thought about rubber spacers the same size as base plates.
