For many sim racers there are tons of options for sim racing chassis or rigs.  However when it comes to triple screen monitor stands for sim racing there are not that many to chose from.  

In this video Shauns shows off his design for a triple monitor stand that is made out of 80/20 extrusion or profile tubing.  This universal material can be used to make a very good monitor stand completely designed around your rig.

He goes through each step of the build along with a list of parts and instruction on how to design and build your own triple monitor stand.
 


Here is a list of the total parts used in this build:
Tubing:


Hardware:


Here are a few 80/20 tubing suppliers for information.  I urge you to shop around and find the best source for you:

While I can't imagine wanting an Hyundai interior, it is very well done and looks incredible. Well done.

I like War Thunder, it has some real decent triple screen graphics and sound for flying the airplanes. I prefer the bombers at Arcade Battle rating, but some of the radial engined fighters are a lot of fun too. Other than that, I am an avaid truck driver driving a lot in American Truck Simulator and European Truck Simulator 2. They even have some really good multiplayer for both games, the ETS2 has a Winter mod built in, it looks like Winter with snow on everything and falling. Both games even have a short range "cb radio" that works in line of sight, you just set the microphone in the game and then it goes to a hot mike and people can hear you, but if you get out of sight, you can't hear each other. Now I wish other games would get the technology and incorporate it.
