FourthStreet's DIY Sim Racing Cockpit

Hello! The other day I was searching DIY cockpit's in hopes to land on a plan. I came across Wayside's DIY cockpit which inspired me to take the plunge into 9 hours(so far) of worthwhile but exhausting work.

I made some adjustments to the steering wheel arms/base because I felt Wayside's design had a couple of weak connection points. I also used a mixture of 2x6's and 2x4's instead of just 2x4's to increase the rigidity. I changed the design of the shifter mount which did not jeopardize the stability but allowed for less material. Lastly, my DIY monitor mount is not attached to the rig so, it is easily maneuverable(pics soon).

Check it out! I jumped the gun to post this so I could share with all of you! When I'm 100% finished I'll post dimensions, and final pics.

After sanding this is where I left off last night! Tonight we install the floor board for the pedals, drill a hole in the wheel table to run the cables, and install adjustable feet to help with any leveling needed. Then, it's headed to PAINT!
