Everything is looking good and you can't have to many clamps. lol
My only advise is to take your time welding, heat is not your friend when chopping a top.Tack everything in, spread your welds out so you create minimal distortion.

Thanks. Yeah I keep buying more and more. Think I may need more clecos by the end of this. Oh well the Pontiac is going to need a ton of sheetmetal work.
I hear you on the welding. My goal is to have it all tacked together and weld it out over a few days. That way I can just do small sections and move on to keep the heat to a minimum.
