Fill The Gap.

Once all the bending and tweaking is done, its time to fill in the gaps and seams that were created. Dave starts by placing a strip of sheet metal underneath the gap and clamping it in place. He then scribes a line in it , cuts and trims it, and then welds it into the gap.

The strips are spot welded into place. Dave taps the strip with the hammer to make sure the edges are flush before welding.

When the welding is finished the excess is ground down.

Of course, if you slant the windshield, you're going to have to do the same with the door window frames so that the front of the frame will fit at the same angle. But, they were going to be chopped anyway, so it will all be done at the same time.

That looks better.
