That's the way this one will be when I get all the panels welded in. I won't be in too big a hurry to cover it until I cruise for a while and I'm sure I don't need another hole or mod. Thanks again Guys! It's not even permanently in yet but I like it a lot! Bob

I love the look of raw steel panels after making them too. Gives you that "aaahhhh" feeling.

That's the ticket for my project. Looks like an easy install for the carpet.

Low n' 51ow Looking good Dad, just get it done!! Spring is around the corner!!!

StreetKruzer Made the patterns for the floor just inside the front doors. I was able to fold them like the actual panels would be. It certainly helped me to get a clear idea of how to proceed. Thanks goes to Rod and Custom & deadbodyman for pointing me in the right direction. Bob

Never enough help! When I compare some of your before & after pics, it is amazing to me. Don't think I will ever get there. Looking good!

DBMAN!!!!!!!!!! I would say that you certainly enjoy a CHALLENGE! Mine doesn't look nearly as bad to me now as it did only five minutes ago! LOL. I would have to back into that one, because if I walked right up to it I'd run away before I got there! You got balls! By the way, I didn't want to appear as if'n I had no fetchin's up so I'm gonna try to use my CAPITALS appropriately! Thanks all for the help.
