Ya and it is really hard to get in those joints and sand/file down the big welds.

I started a tuber like that and then went with 3/16Al. just because Al. is easier to sand/file


But seriously once you paint, install everything and get panels on it you will hardly notice the welds

Your driveshafts are going to hit the chassis.
