    No , I hold it in with clecos . Scribe a line, undo the panel , cut excess off , then butt weld , if I did it the way you were saying the cutting disk or blade is too much of a gap . Perfect tight gaps is key

    Simply beautiful. A work of metallic art.
    I realize folks never say but, I wonder what amount
    of money has been spent on that magnificent build so far.
    based on today's labor rates, time and materials?
    Making your dreams come true can be expensive.

    Cody: How about slanting the B-pillar without shopping the top?
    It would be a first, I think, and could would look great with finesse.
