What stops the metal from work hardening, like aluminum?

Its internal structure. Steel doesn't work harden the same as aluminum and some stainless steels (at least not anywhere close to the same degree). It's also more formable than aluminum.

When you don't know what you're doing, it's best to do it quickly.

And when Iím gone, you can call me foolish but hopefully not boring. I will have lived.

The more I learn about women, the more I like my car.

got this 50' ford in a couple weeks ago. has been chopped and a section started. like a lot of crazy sheet metal modified cars, there is a lot of metal work that needs to be redone. so right now i am focusing on the roof area and working my way down.

making new sail panels. left them long and turned the edges so i can spot weld the inner window channel in place at factory spot welds to cut down on long weld seams





shape roughed in



ready for final planish and fitment



now onto the area above the door. they welded the door tops in the car to make it hard top, the seam was low, and needed some attention. so i decided to make a new skin to replace the seam. again left it long to get the edge turned to spot weld in at factory spots.



roughed in



ready for final fit and finish planish
