I remember my days in the body class, we did basicaly the samething but i had to make it shaped like a door frame and have a shaped skin on it, when I got mine done a month before the rest of the class my teacher stomped on it and said fix it, so i did and when that was donr he had me cut a hole in it then fix that. after that was done i got to make up my own color and paint it.

Anyway enough about me, lets see a few more pics of it, because it looks good so far

we just took old metal shelving and cut them up into small pieces (haha, my teacher is cheap) we used spot welding, mig bead, mig spot/plug, tig, and oxy/actyl brazing

sorry about the pic but it was on my phone. ill try to get a better picture with a real camera, but im pissed because today when i was putting the clear on some a$$hole kid messed with the fluid control and now it has a big thick yellow/clear (we used cheap clear coat) line on it
