Wow That is some interesting patchwork. Are the patches held on with sheetmetal screws?

Yep. Not even stainless. The rust stands out a bit. To be fair, I must say it does not let water in.

Finished riveting after dark, and it looks like I messed up one of these rivets, but don't feel like redoing. (Didn't the Navaho blanket weavers put an error in, so as not to offend the gods? If so the gods will be bonkers over this project !!)

Beautiful work and incredibly creative!!

Odd compliment, but nice patchwork, looks intentional and nicely done.

I'm so disappointed in my square patch I put over my old heater vent. Why didn't I do something creative?!

Seriously, you guys have some awesome patches!
