Finished corner, upside down but you get the idea.

You and the fella doing the 50 Willy's truck rebuild are flat out running a seminar on the right way to do repair or custom sheet metal body work. Nicely done.

Edit:

Like this
I have a gloss black liberty and yeah you can see every single little scratch.

Thanks man, But that guy is way more advanced than I. Maybe in a few more years. He has all the equipment I dream of. One of these days I will have the tools and place to do some of that stuff.


No work on the truck this week. I am taking a break. I will get back to work in a week or so.
