Now we are going to make the final piece. The piece that everyone sees, the piece that has to be shaped just right so we don't have to close it up with body filler to make it look good. The first, thing that Alex is going to do is measure to just to get a template roughed in. You can not really measure to get everything perfect but you can get it close. Maybe you are noticing a pattern here it is pretty much the same thing with every piece that we build, you measure, you mark, you rough it in to shape, and then do a final fit and the bending if necessary. This piece would be difficult to build time consuming cause it has to go around the corner.
