A little bit more is done, My laser cut kit came in and the z car is welded.
And yes I did countersink the 2 holes. All and all everything seems to be square and level....

That part definitively takes the most time, doing electronics neatly, and then your vast box, will fill up quickly.

I can tell you I filled every bit of a 20 x 30 and then some with the inverter on the wall outside the box. Wire management is SO much easier when you can see everything.
Good luck.

Nice. I'd hate to run into those beam ends while carrying a sheet of ply..
Wait till the gantry rolls the length of the table with a little push...great feeling, you're close to it.

more progress

Well the frame is painted, and the sub rail for the linear rails is installed, now i am installing the linear rails.
I have a block mounted on the linear rail, the pins have a .022" gap and the wire is .016", center the wire and screw down the rail. should be with in +- .003 of straight. I have the wire insulated from the frame I'm playing with a ohm meter to tell when the wire is not touching the pins.

Watching with interest... Still have my linear rails laying around here somewhere, running the diy v rails and so far no reason for the linear, but it was a 2day chore to make then v rails.. Youre saving that effort. I had similar approach in mind for the install.

My first car was a Moriss Minor painted verde matese from Alfa Romeo. Some examples: https://www.google.com/search?tbm=is...matese+alfasudAddress&tbm=isch&tbo=u&source=univ&sa=X&ei=BpSLVcS yLM3y7Abthb3wAg&ved=0CCoQ7Ak&biw=1278&bih=863#tbm= isch&q=verde+matese+alfa+romeo

It was useful over standard zinc-chromate paint
