Default Another pipe offset job

Thought I would take the camera to work today for the tie-in of my offset over a new bridge/ culvert on a road. Starting with the first pic, 80° bend into a straight tie-in. The next bend is a 50° bend going towards the wingwall of the bridge.

Same 90° bends on the opposing wingwall, and then a 45° bend into a 65° bend and into the tie-in.

lolol
I was thinking something similar but even more modest; I have no doubt you could be, Jeff but I'm just glad
I never even aspired to be a pipe weldor.

edit: Come to think of, I'm glad I never aspired to be a weldor.

Seems to me that half of being a pipe weldor, based on Chris's pics, is jumping in freshly dug holes. .......I could do that.

I started the job wednesday morning, and would've finished that afternoon, but I was short one 90° bend for the last turn. It was finished and on test thursday morning at 9 a.m. Tie-ed it in yesterday morning.
