59 chevy stepside sheet metal replacement?
Hey all,

I'm in the process of replacing bad sheet metal on my 59 chevy stepside.
The toeboards need replacing, along with the lower door hinge pillar.

Is it a best practice to just work on on piece at a time, or since they join to work on them at the same time? My plan is to do one side at a time, not both at once to maintain as much ridgitity as possible.

That's a matter of preference. If it is easier to put them in together, go for it. But, as you've stated, I would not advise doing both sides at ones.
