I'm going to be tackling my long term 29' Chevy roadster project soon. I'm looking for some opinions on a few ideas I had concerning the fabrication of the skin. I have a pair of very rough doors. The passenger door is straight but you can read through it. The driver door is solid but was literally ran over so it's pretty hurt. Chevy roadster doors aren't exactly falling off of trees and reproductions are not available. I am still working on building my English wheel which in my opinion would be the "correct" way to start off but with most things, there's more than one way to skin a cat. Is it possible to make a male die from oak with the proper crown and shape of the door and press it into a piece of 18 gauge using a shop press? I was thinking that I could bolt the metal over a frame and press the male die into the metal, effectively pressing/stretching the proper shape into it, where I could then use a female mold of the bead detail to flow form that into the skin... Make sense? I understand that using a wheeling machine would be the best way to shape the door. Just looking for some alternative ideas. Would it be possible to pull a duraglass mold backed with concrete off of the entire door to use a mold for flow forming? Here's a picture of one for reference.
