    The 32 sedan . That car had already been chopped and I have to 'unchop' it.also have to make new roof panels for it too as it looks as though a mini van roof was might welded in.that car will be media blasted and then I will have more pics on that.

    I wish I had some metal working talent .Once I tried taking a dent about the size of a dime out of the hood of my truck. Should have well enough alone....ended up with a bigger dent .

    Nice work!
     
  12. I'm speechless. Seriously, I don't know what to say. I amazed and a little depressed because I realize that even if I started now I wouldn't have enough time left in my life to learn how to do work like this. You are an incredible craftsman, man.

    Thanks so much for sharing.

    So glad I got to see this in person,

    It looked so much better in person, like it just got stamped out
    in a press back in 1938!!!

    Great to meet you Jon and once again what outstanding work on the fender, hopefully I can make it over to your shop some time....

    Spent the weekend with my powder coating booth next to Jon and his booth at the Greybeard car show in Denver. I stared at this fender for 3 days and It never ceased to amaze me. What a incredible talent! Great work Jon!! Hope to have some metalwork for you in the future.... Lee

    That fender is just incredible and pictures just do not show Jons talent.

    It was nice to meet you Jon and see your work first hand.

    I was impressed with "after 6 hours":):):)
    "and finished...." blows me away!!!:D:D:D
    A "METAL SURGEON" You ARE!!!:cool::cool::cool:
    The only problem I see is pairing it up with an "inferior" OEM fender!
