1) at one end of the tubes, glue tube_end about 35mm in, wait until glue sets
2) install brackets, tap frame m5 holes
3) once the glue has set on one end, glue tube_end to the other end and install to the brackets and frame, let glue set. Don't use the printer while the glue sets.
4) optional : remove, prime aluminum and paint, re-install. Or you can paint before glueing
for 3 above you can do this for the 2 sides at the same time OR to make sure that the lengths are the same do it for one side first then when the glue has set, use the assembled piece as reference for the other side.
