    I tried to kept the curvatures simple and subtle - but neither shape is particularly Type 59-esque. I didn't think you were going for a replica anyway, more 'in the spirit of', which I hope they are
    Even the ever so slight curvature between the wheels makes a huge difference to the overall elegance I think.

    I agree - I let artistic licence play out a little for the long tail, whereas I tried to follow the shape of the cloth template with the original short tail, and was left with trying to make an elegant shape work for the very end. Second attempt is much more appealing to my eye, even if shortened as you say.

    Will be interested to see it start to take shape on the actual car, as these things tend to take on a life of their own as you try and execute them
    Never be afraid to stand out from the crowd!

    heating and rapid cooling of aluminium will harden it, you need to heat it and let it cool at a natural rate to anneal it.

    Rub some soap on ally and heat it till the soap marks dissappear, this is the right temp to anneal it. Let it cool naturally.
    The other way (if you have oxy/acetylene) is run a really sooty flame over the ally to soot it up & then heat till soot burn off - same perfect temp.
