Yes, first attempt. I only had one piece to work with so I made sure that everything was lined up square and straight and went for it. One bend was a degree or so off  where one of the axles attach and it has a "slight" twist on that same bend. But overall I'm quite satisfied with the result. It lays out pretty flat on the floor.
