Do you have acess to a sheet metal brake and a bead roller?...oh, and lots of paperboard or cardboard to make templates. If you do, you can tin the car yourself by purchasing enough .040 sheet aluminum. It'll be way less expensive than buying those pre-formed kits that you'll have to spend just as much time altering to fit your application anyway. Just a thought to try and save you some money.

Yea thinking it over would like to have brake and bead roller but shop space is limited and I am only building my car, good investment if I thought that I could go into business,yet another thought but the jegs kit looks to be the best route

I'm not suggesting that you buy those tools for one project, but more suggesting to see if there is anyone near you that has those tools that you can use/borrow?

I know what you meant Vin but like I said I know a couple guys local and they are real proud of their stuff, and it would cost me to "borrow" from them looking at a set up from harbor freight tool discounter outlet but don't know of the quality of the end result of using it but just the same thanks for the feed back I got some time yet, maybe I can gather up the coin needed to buy it
