    JJ-

    when you line up that long side tall rocker do you overlap the panels then cut both layers to get your edges to line up or do you lay it over, Mark a line, remove the new panel then cut it all the way down and put the new panel back on and burn it ? About to do my long side with that same KF tall Panel and have been curious…. Love seeing a single back in the shop!

    I vice grip it and sharpie line it. Leaving the sharpie line…  I try to creep up on it… not too slowly… but it seems more times than not, if I just “mark it and go for it” in one sharpie line and one cut, I gotta bigger gap to fill, takes longer to weld, gets hotter, takes longer to grind, probably more mud too… blah blah blah…  So… taking a bit more time usually is a wiser choice… 😉  😉

    On a truck…. you gotta cut both panels.. other wise your weld won’t be behind that brace.   The regular bus panel comes ready to throw in. 😉

    Awesome! I see now what you are talking about with the brace and that does make a perfect spot to hide my booger welds!

    Killing it, indeed. I’m pretty excited to see those cargo/bed panels go in… don’t know why as it will cover up the skilled work you’ve accomplished so far. One just doesn’t see this level of craftsmanship anymore. Outstanding effort, outstanding attention to detail.
