Nice job. I also built one using a Sears carrier. I see you replaced the stock lid supports. What did you use... gas shocks? Did you have to modify the front hinge to allow the lid to open fully like yours?
i used a piece of 3/4 emt. and put the ends in a vise and flatten them then drilled a hole and used the brackets that i left when i took the supports out. works very well. i am getting the chrome rims from discount tire in longview tx. they will not ship or take cards over the phone. my aunt lives there so she put a down payment and will be picking them up.(sat i hope). nice project everything turned out very well.
