    the center of the D was done on the hammer as well. we clamped the center section in the die set using a piece of flat stock to bridge the gap, and hammered it in as the last step. it was running i hammer mode to get a good enough hit to press the dies together. yes it is a baileigh MH-19

    lots of things have been going on around the shop and havent had a a ton of time to post much so here is a recap of the more interesting things

    had to make a brake booster recess for a customers firewall. all hand shaped

    had an OT fuel tank to make turned out pretty nice so i figured i would post it. all hand shaped from aluminum

    [​IMG]

    [​IMG]

    [​IMG]

    finished up the metal work on the cowl area of the Fiat topolino

    [​IMG]

    this one was a fun one. this 39 chevy was hit going to the local cruise night a while back. they had a hard time find a new door or fender so i was in charge of fixing what was there

    [​IMG]

    [​IMG]

    started with beating the fender back into shape

    [​IMG]

    [​IMG]

    [​IMG]

    mostly roughed out, this was as far as i was going to take it until i could bolt it back on the car

    [​IMG]

    then it was time to start on the new door skin

    [​IMG]

    the plan was to wheel out a new door skin and replace everything from above the body line down. of course when we started digging we found more problems. once the door panel and skin were removed there was a lot of damage done by previous repairs to the inner door frame. so that took some time to fix

    [​IMG]

    [​IMG]

    [​IMG]

    [​IMG]

    as you can see by the final inner pic there was a lot of repair work to be done

    [​IMG]

    putting the new body line in the new door skin

    [​IMG]

    i didnt take a ton of pics making the skin or wrapping it on the frame

    then the rest of the came in for me to fit the parts to

    started to finish up the fender

    [​IMG]

    [​IMG]

    and all finished up ready to go back to the body shop ** note, we were not doing the repair on the lower cowl, that is the body shops repair**

    and a before and after shot

    Very nice work, that riveted cowl patch is a graphic example of the difference between craftsmanship and a repair.
