Carter head - need support or not?

Postby rlmisso » Fri Dec 13, 2019 12:13 pm

Hello team, I am finally setting this up after months of being too busy and I'm wondering if I need a support under the Carter head. It's not light especially when the basket and pc is full.

Here's a few images to help

Easy, I've wanted a ceiling mount for a while to help take it apart on my own.

Cheers team :happy-partydance:
