Andy,

Just some good booze for the metal pixies, slap hard with the hammers and shot bag, and then take a rest. Repeat as required until the pixies see it your way.

All the Best,

Hank in Tin-A-See

Might as well make some extras, to share with your new friends What radiator shell are you using?

I don't know just what my radiator shell is off of but it is close to the mercury shell. It is brass and has been painted. I'm going to strip it and hope that it is good enough to plate. You can see it in my profile.

Andy

I started today by cutting the sheet on steel down to size. I used a straight edge and a steel cutting blade in a skill saw, makes great straight lines.

After I had my steel cut to size I laid out and cut the skirts to fit. Now to go see the guy with the 8 foot brake.

I'll be in touch Tim, I do have to modify the drivers side since I am going to run my exhaust out the side of the car.

Well, I made a new friend with an 8 foot brake and got my skirts bent into channel. Now I need to form it to the curve of the body, 2 person job with the kick shrinker. I'll need a volunteer from the audience.
