Z'ing the Vern Tardel way

I have been following Mike Bishop's and Vern Tardel's book on how to build a traditional hot rod and I have a question about putting the step in the rear crossmember. I understand the part about cutting it off 4" from the face of the crossmember and welding the bottom rail to the top but I am having a hard time visualising the fillet welds made out of 2x4 channel stock. The pics in the book aren't that clear. He goes on to say it's not a good idea to box this in but the pics look like he did. Using channel stock to me would force you to box this in. Anyone done this and have a clearer pic of it???? By the way this is a model a frame I am using. Thanks!!!!!!!!!

Deuce,

Thanks again. That's twice you helped me today. I am new here and since this is my first attempt at rodding after years of doing restorations I appreciate the time and the help.

Mike and Vern will both admit that book is a recipe to build a certain car a certain way. Even using a different year of flathead will throw off all the measurements. Still they are the gurus. And real good people. I'm sure Mike would respond. I don't think Vern gets online much.
