    Surely takes some talent to make your own panels. Good job!

    How are you figuring to get all the correct rolls into the panel for finish? The part I've always had trouble making is the compound twist in the front lower quarter panel section below the belt line.

    It can be done. It took me a few tries and some wasted sheet metal to get it right but my metal working skill doesn't even come close to what it looks like Bonky has.

    Spend some time watching Trev's Blog on youtube. He seems to be able to teach anyone how to work sheet metal with basic tools and practice.

    I've got mad redneck skills shaping metal with very few professional tools. I have aquired an 1890's steam belt driven bandsaw frame to finally make an English wheel for my own shop. I think my lathe motor burnt up tho, so making more new dies for the bead roller is temporarily out. Making tools is as much fun as using them. But it did take me forever to figure out how to get that front lower quarter section right and it always feels great to nail it. Those challenges are what makes it all worthwhile to me. There's no such fun to be had without rusty cars they don't make parts for. My hat's off to you Boncky!
