If you look at the deck you can see a slight twist, the front near corner is lower. I suppose I'm being nitpicky here, but to me that sticks out like a sore thumb every time I see it. lol. What happened was I had the frame on the stands with the main frame, crossmembers, and side rails all ready to weld. As I came around the front to start welding I hit the front corner of the side rail with my thigh, HARD. After I got done cussing, dancing, crying and got back from the doc's office with 3 stitches in my thigh and a 6" diameter bruise, I forgot that I had knocked it out of square. So I proceeded to weld the entire main frame together FAR out of square. I didn't see it til I came to put on the beavertail and the sheet didn't fit. I was MAJOR bummed. lol. So what I did was cut the horizontal welds on the crossmembers at the outer rail, completely removed all the main crossmembers in the main frame, then put a come-along corner to corner and pulled it til it was square. My shop had some anchors in the floor so I was able to use those to keep the twist out. Then I re-welded the whole thing going over the old welds as well as redoing everything I cut and re-installed the main crossmembers. I also put 2 1 1/2x 3/16 flat bars at a diagonal over the crossmembers to make sure it stayed straight since because I didn't cut the crossmembers free from the main rails they were now a bit s shaped. When I was done and the floor was on you couldn't see it, but over time the stress eventually gave it the twist you can see. I know most people don't even see it, but since it was a mistake I made to me it's an eyesore. lol
