Building the Tray - Part 4

Utter disappointment today.... The steel that I had taken to Brisbane Metal Products to have folded for the tray bed and rolled for the inner guards and was promised for today was not done.  The excuse from the owner was 'The rollers have seized up and my press won't bend 3mm steel'.  I would have thought he should have known that a week and a half ago when I took the steel in for the job. This has put us two weekends behind with no real advancement.

On a good note, I did find a business close at hand that sells all of the hardware that will be needed for the lockers.  The company is called Dunn and Watson and they import Door locks, hinges, rubber seals, cargo slides, air vents, windows and lots of other goodies - Love that place.

Lots of little jobs this weekend and a bit more planning for the outer shell.
