    looks great!
    a learning experience is one of those things that says, you know that thing you just did...don't do that again.

    Thanks guys. The tubs were buried in snow when I bought them and the amount of rot in the one tub had me down for a bit. Then I just said Fawk it, push forward and figure it out. I formed the corners yesterday once I figured out how I was going to bend the sheet evenly. I rigged my own press using a large rachet strap, a 2x6 piece of wood standing on end and a propane torch.

    I measured from the center of the tailgate to the far side of the gas fill hole. Precut my sheet then clamped it to body. Stood the 2x6 vertically against the sheet. Then wrapped the rachet strap around the tub with the buckle on the wood. Slowly tighten the strap and add heat to the steal as the wood works its way around the corner.
