I took the top plastic off and took to a local fab shop and he bent and welded.
Then I had a guy powder coat.
Think I have a total of $30 in it.
Only thing I should have done is had drain holes put in. The water tends to sit inside it.
I made mine with 2x6's and have wingnuts to take on and off. My back board is in a grove and can slide off to get anything out. My wife likes to paint rocks and I get some big ones. Makes it nice to not have to lift up and out. I don't have to worry about plastic splitting.
