When making patches for panels, what guage thickness steel did you use? What kind of steel?
We use a micrometer to match the thickness and gauge of the original piece and if I don't have one lying around I grab one at Lowes...

Great video. Never thought of using ratchet straps. But I have used steel L-brackets tacked to the firewall and floor, using 1/4" all thread to pull them together. You can strategically use this method to draw both close enough to form and screw them together. But your ratchet method seems to work too. I like your thread. Very informative. Thanks
