For the exoskeleton I highly suggest you use some thick tubbing or square tubbing. What's the point of the exoskeleton? But please do some drawing of what your doin first before any building

I plan on doin the exo skeleton out of 10 garage 2x2 square tubing and everything we are doing we build out of 24 gauge steel first to see how it looks and fits.
