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

      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 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.
