^^ it's nothing like that. I've done cab lights on 7 Super Duties now. It's a piece of cake. Don't let these guys intimidate you. The first 1/8" pilot hole is the hardest. MEASURE MEASURE MEASURE.

I'm not worried, I've done way more stupid things than drilling a few holes in some sheet metal, this should be a piece of cake.

I like your style. It's only irreparable damage if it goes wrong. But it could always be worse lol

So here is a question. Every write up I have seen says measure a million times. Doesn't anyone have a pattern that thay can just lay down?

I can always fill the holes with some ugly welds and repaint, maybe black? Ha

The pattern idea would be nice.
