Here follows the job of recunstruction the mats
Then begins the job of getting the top two sections fit together
These sections are equally rough for better stabilisitet of rotor support bearings
It got resolved with 6 hardened plates connecting section two and three.
This is the result
This storage one meter above the rotor saves a lot of sideways
