When starting a project truck that includes a variety of body modifications like a top chop, shaved door handles, suicide doors, channeling, sectioning, peaking or any other type of customizing the cardinal rule is simple: does a particular modification work with the overall theme of the vehicle? If it does then measure 800 times, cut once, tack weld, measure another 800 times, then finish weld. Triple the number of measurements if you're doing something for the first time.
Having a supervisor helps...
When this photo was taken, "Pepper" was watching with great
intrest as I used a Makita grinder on a weld. The noise didn't seem to have much of an
effect on him, and I received a suggestion that I smooth out the cowl vent...He spends a
considerable amount of time with me in the garage working on the truck...
