WOW! How did you make your cuts a Whiz wheel on a Die grinder? Or did you use one of those Mini Reciprocating saw's?
I don't think I could have pulled that one off and made it look so good.

I used both a 3 1/2 inch cut off wheel and a air body saw to make my cuts. I used the cut off wheel on areas where there was a brace behind the panel and a air body saw for the rest.
