I could post a pic if you were interested. I used unidirectional sleeve and braided tube. Some great materials and exceedingly strong with super long fiber lengths.
I don't head down to this subforum often and just saw this.
I would LOVE if you could post a picture Sammy. That bridge sounds like an amazing work of craftsmanship.
