    I'd say maybe 2-3 hours and most of that was shaping. This is a personal car so I can only work on it after hours and I really only get a few hours here and there a well on it

  2. A proper buck has compound curves. Your more the halfway there when you think about it.

    philo, that changes a bit. Sometimes maroon then at times dark metallic green like the ones I have attached.

    20180206_205721-01.jpeg 20180206_210053-01.jpeg got to put in a few hours tonight, i trimmed back the upper portion of the catwalk panel to the stock opening of a 1938 zephyr convertible. i also added the mounting flange surface for the convertible top, once i get the pieces all fine tuned im going to weld it all together so its one big piece to install after i make my inner structure

    I extended my catwalk 13" compared to the stock 1938 Zephyr panel which is the flexible shape pattern you see on top of the panels I made. I personally think the stock convertible top is to long and looks awkward. [​IMG]

    For anyone curious this is how I made my wire form, I took a external form of a zephyr catwalk and then flipped this over and made a internal wire form that I have installed and using for my panels. I can also use this to make a wood buck which I will be doing as Well since I've had a few request for this same panel. 20180207_172913.jpg
