Oh yeah . It kept a guy on his toes . Somewhere I have a full set of pictures of when I replaced the rusted out sides on our Dodge church van back in '82 using 22 gauge body metal sheets and brazing in the metal . This was in Michgan's Upper Peninsula and some of those (patches) were 12" wide by 6 feet long with no way to hammer and dolly them . Braze , quench , repeat . Long days . LOL . I must say it looked good when I was done .
