Great pics!

Please explain the steps you took to make the radius to follow the roof line...
I can't tell the thickness of material, so I don't know if you made cuts and closed the gaps or just bent the material.
I see your template drawn in the floor.
Thanks for the pics:thumb:

:dance:Well I got the picture on here,(twice) but it is obvious I have no clue as to what I am doing. No surprise to me. I'm actually a little farther along on the build. Just wanted to see if I could upload a picture on here. This is a small part of some cabinetry on the drivers side.:dance:

You can edit your post, then "manage" your attachments and removed the attached image, since you have 1 hosted & posted from photobucket.

Good start though!!!

I have tried to answer you now twice and this POS computer keeps knocking me off when I post the reply. I'll try again later Milkmainia

Nice, I never thought to use metal studs with the sides snipped to contour to the ceiling... I'm putting in overhead cabs right now so I may steal your idea...

Ah, I see now that it it C-Channel studs.

I'm on an iPhone and it wasn't clear until I saved the photo and enlarged it.
There's several threads regarding metal studs on the forum, and I think they're a great idea!
I once saw an outdoor patio kitchen constructed of metal studs, skinned with cement board, then finished out with brick veneer.... You had to really dig around to see that it wasn't a solid brick built kitchen!

Anyway, there's a YouTube video of a guy kinda sorta explaining the cuts needed to follow the roof radius...

Well it's not really my idea but thanks for the kudos. It's just a lot easier than cutting 2x3's. I've been in some kind of construction for years and it just made sense to use them.:Thanx:

I see that you answered your own question Milkmania. That is it in a nutshell.
