Be careful with the crash mat. Lots of bugs and animals can get in that thing, and it won't be pretty if you land on it when their turd and stuff is in it...
Fecteau, you are the first person I will turn to when I break up with Micah, haha

Why go through all the hassle? Think stable, yet mobile. Being able to move and relocate the material is essential, in my opinion.

Just look at the pics, I got an alternative to the cinderblock wall set up already ;)

That reminds me. The cool thing about this, is that all the material (and setup in general) is constantly changed in how it's all setup. Everythings somewhat easy to do, so we can arrange it how we want :)








nvm then lol

i like your setup way better.

David I really like it. After my little book project is finished then I'd love to build something like this of my own. :)

Might want to clean that up, and remove as much rust as possible.

Other than that, jealously.

I do believe I am inspired to highjack my dad's truck, drive over there and borrow that crash mat without asking... Even if it might be loaded with animal dung...

I already said that I'm going to paint over the rust ;) (reading is a good thing :P)

I would've done it this past weekend, but Max Henry was over and I didn't feel like trying to rush the drying process.

New pics will be up later today.

Original:



Primer:



PAINT!!!




As you can tell, I've finished up priming and painting the top bars. All that is left to paint are the side and bottom bars, not very worried about that.

Also, while Max Henry was over, we found these big pieces of wood with bars extending out of them, so we extended out the playground with bars and wood to work on strides, plyos, and precisions, while still connected with everything else so you can do some fun runs.

So I'm curious about the painting process, did you scrape the paint off and then sand the bars down before the primer and paint? As it looks now, the paint chips seem like they could come off really easy and stick into your hand, even if they've been primed and painted over.

I sanded loose paint chips off as good as possible. Can only do so much, works fine for me. I'm sure you could wear gloves if it's really that bad.

You can take a putty knife or a chisel and a hammer and get that stuff off, just saying.
