Flop, just discovered your thread. You do amazing work! I am fascinated by all the techniques you employ to tackle your various metal challenges since I have no clue about metal working. Along with many others, I really appreciate you taking the time to post on this forum and look forward to seeing more. When I need metal work done on my 31 Town Sedan, I know where I am going since I am only about 250 miles away! Keep up your great work!

Still hittin it hard I see. Good for you kid! I just might make it to a stop near you soon now that I'm a solo act. I know I said that a couple years ago, but life in that shop was an hourly challenge. So far it doesn't appear as though you've had to, but some home brewed annealing can be handy at times. Get your sheet stock hot but not quite red, maybe a very slight red to it, let it slow cool for a bit, repeat 1 more time not as hot. That shi...uh...stuff (!) get's nice and flexy where you need it and makes complex curves easier to knock out. The shaping makes it hard again. Clearly you enjoy what you do. It shows.

thanks country squire!! glad you are enjoying the thread and hopefully learning somethings along the way !! hopefully we can get some work done on your sedan in the future!!

highlander!! thanks man .im enjoying it is right . not over worked i take only as much as i can handle .alot of planning involved to keep folks happy and projects flowing in and out on time plus having a small shop every square foot is critical! if you are ever in the pittsburgh area let me know ! the spot i though i was going to have to use the torch on today was loaded with plastic and brass so it got cut out and a patch was made.


heres the before and after



while i was welding the patch in i had a bar clamped on the bead to keep everything in the position its supposed to be . i took it out for the picture
