I very carefully lay out my cut lines using masking tape on at least three sides. At which point I pick up my cutting tool of choice and attempt to follow that set of markings. After doing the frame mod for the '32 style gas tank then building my exhaust system have gotten to the point of excellence where I can cut straight at least
