Thanks Richard,

If I had a brain I could be dangerous.

I told my dad ," when I grow up I want to work on cars" he said "you can't do both".

Hey Keith, that's one hell of a talent you have. Keep up the good work. Can't wait to see the T. Bird once it's finished.

Beautiful craftsmanship! Your tools and your talents are light years from mine. I'm excited to see even more.

Talking

Are you going to try the 1958-59 style Bird or the 1960 Bird?

The '60 looks much easier....

LOL!!!

This is a panel for the 40 ford trunk floor. I laid out what I wanted it to look like.

A lot of times beading will warp/wrinkle your panel. To cure this you can prestretch the area with a hammer or a english wheel. I used the wheel. This is just guess work on how much to stretch. I wheel it till it sticks up pretty far, about 3/8" of a inch.

Then I am going to use the pullmax to do this, a bead roller will work also. I already had the dies in the pullmax so I used it.
