thanks for the kind words guys. if there is anyone who wants to learn more about metal shaping, i do offer classes a few times a year. the next class is July 30 & 31

working on some handmade 30-31 coupe 1/4s





started making a 1 piece mini tubbed inner wheel wells for a model a coupe. these are nice since they are one piece with the inner, the lip, and the outer bead to repair the entire wheel well 1 shot

made a buck to repeat the part later



panel laid out



first set of shrinks on the hammer



second set of shrinks



third set of shrinks



after plannishing out the shrinks



then i had to stretch the flange back out
