trying to fill in gaps with sheet metal??

Trying to fill in the obvious gaps with in my sheet metal model, but can't seem to extend the faces due to them colliding. how can I get all the edges to butt up tight to get the best result.

    check the gif.  You could get creative with move face commands but you would be wasting your time.  with onshape, its usually better to consider sheet metal after you have created what you want using solid models and surfaces.  onshape loves converting that geometry to sheet metal.  It seems to understand the intent better that way.  It is also easier for the user to create geometry using regular tools and then just simply converting.  Any other way usually ends up with the user trying to stuff there intent down the applications throat.
