    They are two piece and some filler. I roll both edges of each part through a bead roller and run the edge through a shrinker. It makes a nice roll on the inside and is easy to weld and putty. The tough part is the 1 1/2" draw on the rear section where it needs to make room for the tank. I just cut a slice and rolled the edges in at the slice and filled it in with some scrap.

    Exactly what he said.

    I've gotten so disgusted with a project before that I had to let it set for a couple of months before I could even think about picking it up again.

    When I was building that chassis I did for my 36, I fought with the bottom main tubes so much that when I got them close, I just threw up my hands and walked away. It sat like that, with just the four main rails bent up and tacked in place for over a month before I could stand to look at it again.

    If it's pissing you off, take a break. Build a birdhouse or something, or go chase women, whatever.

    I started building an english wheel when the chassis pissed me off.

    Ironically, I went back to work on the chassis when the english wheel pissed me off . . .

    I just got both door skins roughed in and thinking rear quarter panels. I will be happy when all the big stuff is looking OK and can start to weld and grind. Tired of thinking.........it hurts

    I am a 32 Ford lover ever since I could drive, about 45 years ago. You have a wonderful talent and I look forward to the build.
