Got busy putting the floor together, starting at the rear.
Needed a small drop section to tie to the lower trunk lip, made a nice big access hole to get to the fuel tank, filler, sender, etc.

Nice.... Electric bead roller I presume? I have a hand crank and it's worthless.....you need 4 arms (with good shoulders that is). What gauge & material is that ZZ?

Electric? I wish!! Yeah my shoulder is sore too now.... Using 18 ga. - donít look too close at the lines - itís tough to keep it on the line, hold a big piece up and crank it through. I welded a wheel on to it Ďcause itís often too hard to just move the crank handle .

build a table around the bead roller a tad under center level. I have an electric beader but with 2 hands on a big panel it`s still a pain to see where you go.

Are you pre-stretching the panels before you put the beads in?

By stretching, I assume you are referring to the bends?? No - I lay it all out, do the bead rolling, then put the 2 bends in it to follow the floor framework.
