At Huntington Ingalls Industries Inc.'s 665 acre shipyard in Pascagoula, Miss., shipbuilding unit President Irwin Edenzon says picking up a scrap of paper in the parking lot may prevent delays in building a $2.9 billion amphibious assault ship.

Most of the time these parts need some tweaking or need to be built from scratch. You may be simply adding some width to your existing fender to accommodate a wider tire or starting a new tank from a flat sheet of steel. Regardless of the size or complexity of your sheetmetal project, the first place to focus your efforts is making sure you can produce consistent quality welds so you can enjoy the finished product and have confidence in its durability.
