Rather like the skirt guard insert. Might band the raw edges with a some car door protective strips. Will you be painting the panels if you use them?

Thanks momma JATS, progress is slow but trying not to screw it up by rushing.[/quote]

Slow and steady is my motto....remember it is not the speed of the build but the BUILD!

Re: Chantilly Lace (getting some skirts)more pics

Had to take some time to get this tank put together so I could add another special paint technique to chantilly lace.
starting off with a safeway store meat bin and a heating element from a old wall paper steamer

Got the hole cut and the element in. water testing the tub.

And of course it leaked. time to brake out some gasket maker

Thanks It is a great combo, been trying to find another can of the same dark bronze. Using the aluminum foil and water trick on the chrome which works pretty good but not sure my fingers like it any better then stove top cleaner and steel wool.

Re: Chantilly Lace (back to painting)

Decided I needed to finish painting parts and decided I didnt like the black and tan forks so I sanded them and went all tan. I was on a roll and went to lace the head tube and grabbed the wrong can GRRRRRRR had to repaint the head tube now going to have dinner and will try again later.
