Really beautiful work there.

Something I've always wondered about: How difficult is the lead work around the headlights on those things? Seems like it would be a lot harder than the typical sail panel seam.

That is the most beautiful work. You can consider your self a true Artist in my opinion! It will be a masterpiece when painting is finished.

Have you removed the side panels to see what is under them?

It's not too bad. I try to get it paddled in as close to the correct shape as possible around the bottom of the front of the bucket because its a very awkward place to file. Other than that spot its mostly horizontal surface which is pretty easy (it makes it easier for me to not drop a bunch of lead on the floor )
