Welded the gutter mounts at the far ends first...pulled a tight string line across the expanse and got the other 4 in perfect alignment. Attached the GM to the far end on the north side and pulled the string to make sure that gutter is sloped correctly ( 1/4" per 10'). Planning on painting the mounts before putting in the gutter on the south side - will have to mask the north side mounts that are already in place. Looks like the weather is finally starting the slow climb toward the days of hellish paradise that is summer in Terlingua. 39,54,17,0,B
