every car is different. best deal is to get some cardboard and start fitting it up. best cardboard i've found is the stuff they put on pallets before they stack stuff on them, it's like thick cereal boxes, it's not corrogated (sp) so it cuts and bends nicely. it's cheaper then screwing up a piece of aluminum. also go look at some "factory built interiors" notice how they line the seams up with the corner posts and down tubes. also keep the pieces smaller for more ridgidity. have fun! john

I would have to agree with the card board thing. I would tend to layout the seams where bars come down so u can cut little out of both sheets. Another place to watch is the area around your right elbow. I'd try to keep as much room as u can !!!! I will have to say have fun doing this!!!
