    Thats a nice bit of fab work. And thank you for showing how you got the curves. What thickness is the steel?

    the metal is 1mm thickness and after doing that curve im glad i didnt go for any thicker as it took some doing to get the curve "tight"...

    thanks for the kind words folks, it is appreciated,especially as these are my 1st attempts at making panels like this

    Decided to use this afternoon to start Phase 3 of this panel and i expect this will the last update for a while, as i need to spend the next couple of days prepping my 55 Chevy truck for a show this saturday.....so i expect i wont get back onto the 59 til next week sometime...

    Any how, enough of the waffle and onto the panel......



    Did my usual and went through my making the template stage and transferring to the metal sheet and cutting it out







    Next was to start shaping that curved edge..... a large pair of pliers, panel beating hammer , dolly and a vice helped it along nicely....







    Started to trim it up a little and started trial fitting.......









    And then a first trial fit of all 3 panels at the same time to get an idea of how it will all look,still a long way to go on it all yet........







    Work time involved in this panel from start to this stage was approx 1 and a half to 2 hours...



    Still a lot of trimming,fettling and shaping to go to get it ready for the final steps of cutting out the rot and then welding it all together and into the car........




    Time to start washing and getting my 55 truck ready now so catch you next time
