Once Craig had left that day, I was exiting the car to clean up and SERIOUS DISASTER struck! Stepping into the door opening to exit, I noticed that the whole side of the car was flexing!!! Had we ruined the car? Talk about dropping deuces in your pants! Months of work done in an instant is what I thought. I was sick to my stomach and called Craig back. Upon his return, He and I realized that we should not have removed the bracing yet as the bracing usually stayed in place until the chopped hardtop roof usually done here was welded back in place giving the car back its structural integrity. We decided to try to weld the large plate in place front to back and see if it helped. It did a little but there was still flex and this would certainly ruin the car in the event of driving up a driveway sideways!
