    Step 1:
    Darling, can I spend the money we kept for vacations on my little project?

    Answer:
    What?! That old and you still play your stupid driving games on your stupid computer. Get old man! Now, leave me alone, I’m watching a reality show.

      My wife is giving me $20 000 CDN to build a new rig. I think I’ll keep her!

    I would go with 80/20 and use angle mounts top and bottom for the side monitors and VESA mounts like this http://www.armoractive.com/products/flush-tablet-wall-mount/ so if you want to go up or down just pop the side monitors off in less than a minute.

    80/20 comes with a cost but a lot less headache and you can add to it and change it very easy.

    Nice work on both I love my 80/20 and when and if I decide to quit sim racing I can make something else out of it.

    Really great to see people sharing ideas and taking the effort to pass the information on. Looks like a nicely integrated design.
