Well I finally got out today and was able to get the DIY boom on a volunteers car. Was able to get some usable shots but ran into issues with the stability of the boom as far as side to side play. The bolts used to connect the pieces was also a big PITA but with no other option for me at my home I am stuck. I will end up just getting a proper boom in the next couple weeks which will make things so much easier. Anyway new pictures are up in my rig shot gallery so check em out!
