The best part of the four-wheel drive revolution is how simple it is to install and maintain.
The only thing you’ll need to know to make this process easy is a few basic tools and some basic skills.
This article covers installing 4×10 sheet metal on a 4-wheel-drive home, as well as how to install the 4×5 sheet metal.

Find the right size 4×11 sheet metal is available in a wide range of thicknesses and diameters.
This 4×7 sheet metal can be installed as long as you’re willing to buy four sheets for $2 each.
If you can get four sheets, you can buy six for $4 each.
You’ll need a lot of time and patience to get the right thickness.
If the sheet is too thick, you may need to remove a piece of sheet metal for it to fit.
Measure the height of the panel.
If your home has two or more bedrooms, use the 4-inch height for the top floor and the 2-inch for the other floors.
If there are more bedrooms in the house, divide the height by the number of bedrooms.
If it’s not possible to measure the height for two or three bedrooms, divide it by three.
Check the fit of the sheet metal onto the existing sheet metal framing.
Use the measurements below to determine the fit.
If a panel has a very thick edge, the top of the panels edge should not touch the existing frame.
Measure from the bottom of the bottom plate of the frame.
This measurement is a bit tricky, but it’s the best way to determine how much space is available for the panel to sit on.
If this measurement is above the top edge of the plate, it’s an acceptable fit.
Check with your builder if this is the case.
Measure how wide your sheet metal will sit from the top.
This is where things get a bit more complicated.
This can be done with the help of a ruler, which is best used to measure from the edge of a piece or the edge on the top plate of a sheet.
The ruler will help you find a good fit, but a good rule of thumb is to measure 1 inch from the widest point on the panel and from the center of the edge.
Measure across the bottom edge of each sheet.
This should be measured at the bottom.
If all you can find is the top and bottom, there’s not much room to go wrong.
Check if your panel is strong enough to withstand a four-year-old child using it.
A four-week-old infant may hit the edge or hit the sheet too hard and break it.
The panel can be used to keep a child from sliding off the edge, but you’ll want to be extra careful if you’ve got a child on the floor, or if the child is standing on the edge and your child is in the way.
If an infant can’t handle the panel, you should consider installing a separate 4×2 sheet on the wall next to the panel so the child can still slide around the panel without getting hurt.
Check for the integrity of the top or bottom plates.
If these panels are in good shape, they should be easily removable with a simple nail, screwdriver, or pliers.
However, if the panels are not in good condition, you’ll have to use a hammer to break them open.
If they’re cracked, you will have to replace the panels.
Test the panel’s strength by placing it under a heavy load.
When you do this, you know it’s safe to put the panel back on the frame or to install it into the wall.
Install the 4X5 sheet.
Use this panel to replace or replace any sheet that has been damaged or worn out.
You can use this panel if you want to add a piece to the existing four-panel home.
Make sure it fits in the existing framing.
Install 4×9 sheet metal into your 4×3 home.
You may want to check your existing framing first.
If that doesn’t work, check your new framing first, too.
Check to see if the existing 4×1 sheet metal frame has a crack in it.
This might be a good time to look at the 4 x1 panel and compare it to the original sheet metal that was installed.
If any cracks are visible, the panels should be in good repair.
Check how the 4×3 sheet metal looks.
If anything is missing from the existing panel, replace it.
If no damage has been found, it might be worth replacing the panel with a 4 x5 panel.
Install a 4X4 sheet into the 4 X1 panel.
This will be the last panel to be installed. The frame
