YQW! If/when I do another one I will try the hole saw. It seems like that would be a lot faster than cutting the rectangular openings I did.

And "been there done that" implies past tense. Once the 40 is on the road (soon, oh so soon--stupid evil work) I'll be starting on the 45. Ain't no rust like central american rust (which is surely lurking under tons of bondo). Either that, or I'm getting a second job, and something tells me I might be in the rusty metal business if that happens either...

Last suggestion (J-Zepp reminded me of this one): get the thin wire (0.023/24) for bodywork. MUCH more forgiving than 0.030.
