I am making a mini to and I dont have much money!

I have come up with a solution:

IF the mini is 2 ft or less just put 1 2x4 at each corner ( bolt it on tight and starting the end of the 2x4 at the bottom of the ramp). Then assemble a roof structure with 2x4s. Then put on the roof part.

PS If your mini is longer or wider than 8 ft (witch it probably is). Put in extra 2x4s supports.

PPS The 2x4s are 8 ft long.

PPPS If your mini is taller than 2 ft or you want more headroom than 6 ft than buy those extra long 2x4s and cut them to size.

If you have any more questions e-mail me at Mattsoft1@gmail.com

Well if its going to be outside your defeantly going to want to use some kind of sealer/paint or you can be really dodgy and buy a huge tarp and put that over whenever your not skating it.BUT really big tarps are really expense so you might as well use something really good like skate paint or some kind of polyurathane sealer. And remember do it properly the first time and u shodnt have to worry about it for a while. hope i helped :mrgreen:
