Had a thunderstorm last night take down a few limbs. One landed on the fence, so I took the morning off to clean up the limbs and got some Garage time in to finish cleaning and painting the remaining metal for the Jig. Next step is welding, but most likely not this weekend as this weekend is a car show my Lions club is hosting with Advance Auto Parts.
Been busy cleaning the square tubing with Eastwood Metal Wash and using some weld-thru paint on the areas where I am going to weld. I want to re-use the jig, so am taking some extra steps to both protect it and practice these things for when I work on the car!
I will provide the measurements of the various pieces later:

I need to drill mounting holes and prime these plates:
