Measure twice, cut once? Pshaw!

How about measure once, cut once, realize you have cut the part too small, find a slice on the garage floor, clean it up, stitch weld it to the too small part, and grind the weld?

Why not start over and make a new part that is the correct size? Because I don't have metal bending tools and 3/8" radius bends are tricky and time consuming to make. Did I save any time by stitch welding the sliver on? Probably not.

Ain't restoration grand? Sometimes I think I spend more time fixing my mistakes than restoring the truck.
