    I built this gate when I was with another company. For the past several years I’ve had my own company, J.C.’s Gates and Fab. You can Google it in Gaylesville Alabama. I can’t leave links here. You’ll be able to see photos where I fabricated it. Sad to see it got damaged… It was definitely a lot of work to build.
