    I didn't keep track of the time. I did this in my spare time where I would have been playing in my shop anyway. Might as well make money messing around.

    Did the price include installation? I like to try and keep the installation separate and charge my shop rate by hour for whatever it takes.
    I'm assuming that you painted the railing. What is your paint application routine and brand. I have been using two coats of Rustoleum primer and one or two finish coats. We have spray painted a few jobs with hardware chain rust preventative paint and they have held up very well over the years.
    Thanks for sharing.
    Yes the price included install. I have a 12x20 foot paint room. I use Sherwin
    Williams DTM(direct to metal) paint. I hate having to prime, clean everything up and having to wait to paint. I hang the railing upside down first.....paint the pickets and the inside the channels. I then flip the railings right side up and paint again trying to cover every part very well.

    looks great...

    Did you use your plasma to cut the square holes on the top and bottom rail for the fence post to go in?

    I have an electric hydraulic vertical press I made. I punch the holes with it.
    I had a company make the die sets.

    Very excellent looking! You made some money and another guy is making bids.

    Would you please provide a picture of the area where the screws attach railings to the stucco? I snagged one of your pics to clarify my request.

    Thank You.

    Thanks guys. I'm not sure I understand. You are looking at the mount points
    for the rail in that picture. Three tabs at each end are welded in place to the horz channels.

    I love those. They almost look like a rivet. Very low profile and strong.

    Yeah.........they look a lot nicer than a hex head. I like the button head.
