Got a little shop time in today. Tig welded in the small patch I made and started the metalfinishing work. Using the TIG welder does make the hammer and dolly work SO much easier. Less warpage,softer weld bead and less heat affected zone in the weld make the smooth go much faster. The rest of the panel has a TON of old damage from the years of track racing which I began to hammer and dolly out some of the wrinkles.Lots of stretched metal means alot of shrinking work to be done. The next week is going to be nothing but straightening this old sheetmetal out! In the last few pics I use a piece of 80 grit sandpaper wrapped over a large chuck of aluminum to find the high spots. The surface rust comes in handy to indicate these areas ha ha! A few more pictured show several hours worth of shrinking with hammering off-dolly. More sanding shows the smoothing process at work. Not very exciting to look at but I wanted to get this ironed out the best I can with the panel off the car. Makes it easier to hammer and dolly the wrinkles out..More work on this will be needed. Can't wait to get this done so I can get them mounted on the car!
