For those of you who want to know more about the cold rolled stainless steel used for the exoskeleton of the truck and why it is used and is so strong, watch this video.

First time I tried to drill a hole in 304 stainless, I discovered the fact that it work hardens like crazy.

It's all about the metal grain structure and cold work hardening does it best I learned in metallurgy class years ago.

I have even tried using Cobolt Drill Bits on work hardened SS door kick plates, wasted the drill bit.

It can be drilled or cut with multiple technologies:
Gas Torch
EDM
Laser Cutting
Plasma Torch
Diamond-Coated Tools
Abrasive Tools

These two I am not so sure about, but probably:
Carbide-Tipped or Solid Carbide Tools?
Water-Jet?

You just gave me an idea: creating an HHO torch that plugs into the 110V outlet so you can work on your truck using just water! It would be part of a mobile repair kit
