Wrong Nails?

I'm having a very difficult time nailing the sheet metal onto new wood. I'm using 3d 1 1/8" nails and am bending 6 or 7 nails for every one I am able to get in straight. Is there a better nail?

Re: 1924 Tudor rear body bracket

Outstanding. Going through a box of misc. parts I was able to find a piece that looks like that. But only one of them. It shouldn't be too difficult to make another one if I can't find a second. ...

Re: What is this screw in the center main for?
