    all installed

    and made a cowl patch . notice how much curve they have . also never curve the part witht the bead . it should stay straight while the panel curves . always see em when folks used shrinker/stretcher on the bottom break to curve the panel

    [​IMG]

    fit is important

  5. Good save and nice work.
    That was some scary looking stuff.
    I could be wrong but that may be the coupe Ray Charles was learning to weld on.

  6. More of the quality panel work we have come to expect from you. :)

    If you ever need a holiday, come in down my way. The panel guys in my town are a joke. Most who could do this work stand around gas Baggin to their friends all day, then have the cheek to charge rediculous prices. :D

    Edit: read, working holiday, haha.
     
  7. Always enjoy your work.

    That was some ugly shit you started with. It's looking good now. I use those magnets out of hard drives too, they have serious holding power.

    That is some serious craftsmanship there. It's really easy to get overwhelmed looking at the pile you started with. Great save!
     
  21. Your right it was some great work, but I have to say the car was not too bad from what I saw.
     
  22. Fantastic work! The coupe is looking great.
