Re: Best way to cut Plano metal roof walks

Daniel A. Mitchell

Micro-Mark’s photo-etch scissors work well. For major cuts I also sometimes use a little 7” sheet-metal shear/brake. Any such tool needs to be kept sharp and tight to get a clean cut on such thin material. Even then a little clean-up with a fine stone or Sil-carbide sanding-paddle is often needed.

I've been using cuticle scissors to cut etched parts off of the fret. I can't recall where I bought them but they look like these.

You could try using a pair of these at the very end of the running board to see if they trim the parts to your liking.

I am upgrading a few models by adding Plano metal roof walks and need to shorten a few of them to fit the cars.  Has anyone had experience in cutting these metal roof walks?  What is the best way, without damaging or bending the cut end?  Thanks
