I "second" the second bent idea. That seems like a great (and easy) way to make the arch stand out and look more essential. The bents are quite spindly, so another one would not appear superfluous.

Vern/Sledhead: Thanks for the input. I took your advice on the second bent idea: I also cut the girder down an inch so it doesnt compete with the arch.

You already know my preference...I hope your little people don't look down when they cross the canyon!

I agree, black it is! Of course with a healthy dose of sun peeled paint with rusty petina. Vern-what is your rust secret? your porters dont just have the right color, but the right texture. didnt you reveal your secrets in the On30 Annual?

I had a rusty, crusty finish tutorial on my former website design, I will post it on my site and provide a link. It just takes a little patience and a variety of rattle cans, not hard to pull off.
