Well... this will be my first D.I.Y. and probably not the last. If I think something can be made cheaper with my own hands I usually will. I'll add pics tomorrow afternoon but here's a list of what I used.

Total so far.... $22.47

I was originally going to use the scupper holes but had to revise. To finalize I need 2 more 1/2"x6 sch 80 pv @ 1.78 and 2 feet of pipe insulation (hopefully less than a few dollars).

Final product tomorrow evening.

Added costs
2 1/2" pvc saddle clips for crossbar $1.70
2 more 1/2"x6 pv $1.10
6' pipe insulation $1.64

Final Total = $28.91 (I picked up the final items at Home Depot and prices were a bit cheaper ). Maybe I should have gone there first and saved a few bucks.
