tonight 2.5 hrs were spent on making the aluminum kick panel replacement pieces. i used 22 ga galvanized sheet steel i had laying around this will never deteriorate. as usual Barneys site has all the dimensions to help me piece together the puzzle

Barneys print outs are on the right

the first bend its hard to see

the third bend is what i am working on now and it was the hardest to make for me i had to work onthe jig to set it up

finally flipped it around to get it right

and then the same process on the other side

and yes i do have a lot of clamps and this is one of my favorites....the HF ones dont copmpare
