Bonjour mon ami … great job and such a pleasure to watch you work thru it. On the subject of the interior vents, just a thought that instead of fully boxing in the vent, perhaps add a water/vent at the bottom like 2″ square and then tack in some mesh to allow drain AND prevent future “Rodent” protection ???
“it’s only metal”…Brent have you ever thought about taking a 90’s dodge truck (4×4) (or other truck) and make it “stealth” looking haha? I have. Add sheet metal to all the rounded corners making them sharp corners…sounds like a fun project…yes? no? hehe. Imagination…watching Barney too much haha. peace
Watching this gives me confidence to finally tackle my MG.
35m 05s, shaping the lower corner piece was magic to watch. Metal shaping wizardry. Stay safe.
Looks great thanks for sharing another great video
Another great video. You make it look easy!
It looks great in my opinion, thankyou for another great video, and hey Pablo is looking good, bouncing around like a pup when it’s time to go home,maby git a snack before bedtime.

Borrow your knowledge every day Mr B, still working on y modle T
Post, pillar, L n R cab corners, n rocker panels sliced-diced-hammered, streched n shrunk, gonna get out da hospital bed out fer da patient. Let’s go in dad, follow me!
Seeing the two previous classic Hot Rods I was thinking, why not install a Corvair engine, have the transaxle in back and reverse the shrouds (unique and out of the box)? 😉
Cab corners came out nice – and quickly.
As always, thanks for the great work and interesting content 😎
Awesome job on the cab corners! I definitely need to add the stretcher and shrinker to our arsenal. Great video!
