Helmet Head - Bump in run.
Hey your work is great. That goes for all you guys. The HAMB never fails when it comes to sharing and learning! Here are some practice pieces I did. I learned the english wheel from Ron Fournier in Detroit. Slim
I did the 2006 SEMA show with Ron Fornier's daughter, Nicole Fornier and Ron Covell.
Thanks Shane, When I finish paying off my ransom (alimony) I’m gonna lock the door to my workshop and never come out. Rons workshop was great!
I interested in trying to make a 3 piece hood for my 1930 ford how would i start..
This is a 1919 Bowser gas pump Umbrella I made for a customer the red one is the pattern Danny.
This is one of my hand formed steel fenders in bare metal for my 36 Ford roadster & a new glove box door Danny
Dan thanks for posting the '36 fender. I'm working on a buck now to finish the ones I'm working on. I'm going to try your method on the fender lip. I'm building it right into the buck. I'll post pictures when I get it done.
One question, did the stock fenders come to that much of a point originally? I'm only asking because the fenders I have have all cracked there and have had repairs done.
Here's a couple of shots of the top that Terry Hegman did for me .
That looks slick!!! Did he built it off a buck? I'd like to see more if you have build pictures....
Street rodder mag did a two part feature on building it about two years back . they might have back copies .
Thanks. I'll have to go through my father-in-law's back issues....

Thanks, feeling completely lost after reading this dread.

Dyce the picture is a little deceving on the crowns. But the fender is correct according to my contour gages Danny.
Very Nice Phill. Are they steel or alloy mate ?
Very Nice. Polish it !!
