There is something about sheet metal. A big unformed piece of sheet metal always looks so promising, so full of possibilities, but at the same time, so unmanageable. You know there will be a fight. You know it will be hard to cut out big chunks with simple tools. It will be awkward to carry around on your own and if you treat it wrong it will cut your finger (-s) off.
