    These are formed out of a single piece of 3003 alum. No welding!
    They create just enough room for the independent rear end to function

    Did you make a hammer form, or were they done free style?? How deep is the draw of the blister shown? Stu
     
  8. whatever it is, its pretty i like it!:D
     
  9. I've had a few hammer formed blisters I've made also.... only thing they made any room for was the blood that filled them:p:eek:, they didn't sell to well for me ......... wonder why?????:eek:

    those are pretty slick looking , are they for a project ? or does this belong in the vendors or classified section ? lol

    These were formed by me to allow room for the rear susp. to work without rubbing the inside of the bed, on my 56 chevy pick up. I made a male form and then made a female form from that inserted anchors in the female form to hold the alum. so it didn't move during the hammering.
     
  11. How about you show your process of making them, from start to finish

    Stitch:

    That's some nice work. I'd really like to see the form system that you used. I posted a mini-tech a couple of weeks ago of a blister that I made. If you search the forum for COWL STEERING BLISTER, you will find it. You may be interested in the process. Stu
     
  14. I always just love these threads that are just so damn vague and mysterical. You just never know what is going to happen next.

    Looks cool but like to see mocked up in place, not on a kitchen counter.

    I have a dome/buldge/blister on an OT car but mine is more asymmetrical and was formed in two pieces (front/back) then welded and smoothed.

  18. I know what blisters are and what "theY" are used for I just didn't know what yours were for and why there was no other info other than they were made by you
