    Zagato looks great! I replaced the rockers on one years ago, they are great looking bodies. Bob

    I'm stunned. You would be my "go to guy" if I ever need metal shaping done.

    Great to see a master at work. To make it out of several panels, weld it together, then smooth it out to flawless is amazing. Covet your skills and the Zagato. Thanks for sharing.

    Your work demonstrates you are a true craftsman of the highest order.

    I did a little metal shaping this morning. Accidentally put a small ding in my old beater truck. I'll post pics if anyone is interested!

    I wheeled out door skins for a 32 3 window. The doors are going to the blaster and need more work before I finish welding them on. 20210405_191728.jpg

    The rear fenders from the same car needed some repair in the bead. I made pullmax dies a while back to make the bead. I just finished the repair panels today. 20210410_160907.jpg 20210410_173746.jpg 20210411_164140~2.jpg 20210410_165755.jpg 20210410_151101.jpg

    Over the last couple of days I have been working on a cockpit cover for a Bonneville Roadster. I am also finishing the roll cage, and thought it would be far easier to fit the sheet metal first, without having to fit the sheet metal around the cage. It will be a 2 piece cover, so I bent a 1-1/4" flange down on both parts, to make a clean, rigid seam between them. The rest is some wheeling, shrinking, and trimming. More to go, but I will finish that, after the cage is installed. IMG_6939.JPG IMG_6940.JPG IMG_6942.JPG IMG_6948.JPG IMG_6954.JPG IMG_6958.JPG IMG_6965.JPG IMG_6966.JPG

    Nice

    On a left hand drive RPU I did I put a compartment adjacent to the cage to hold a helmet and driving gloves with a hatch on top.

    What kind of blower is that atop the flattie?
