Taco, I cut, bent, and fit the plates, then just tacked it together and had one of the pro welders that I work with weld it out.

I need more practice I guess, or more likely I'll just keep being lazy and let the guys that do it all day every day help me

Wayne, Thanks, I think I'll go the drain hole route and leave the rest intact. I put this on about 3 weeks ago and wanted to test it out a little first before I spent time making it look pretty, which it won't stay very long anyways. I had planned to buff it with the DA and an abrasive pad once I was done cutting on it.
