Something that should have taken an hour and a half, at most, took five. Partially because of badly aimed drills on the aluminum frame, but mostly because of a couple trips to the hardware store to replace things that either weren't there, or were cheap pot metal that stripped out looking at it cross-eyed.
At least the imp now has a slide.
Odysseus did an excellent job setting it up. And now I'm going to go clean up his mess.
