Well its been awhile so were to start well i had the side door sand blasted on the back and the bottom 12" and well let the pics tell the story






so i have started the repaires i have the skin made and about half way through the frame repaires





been playing withe the left c pillar come rear quarter need to replace a big secon of floor and the pillar and the bottom of the quarters


started on the internal brace before


after


went to make a floor section and relised im out of 1.2mm sheet :(  so i made a pillar section in a simmple hammer form can any one pick where i went wrong :?


made right hand instead of left but all not lost need a small patch on the other side
and last but not least put the second last patch in the the donnar roof

thanks for the kind words mate dont know about craftsmen i have more scrap than bits that worked :o
anyhow your wish is my comand so how about a show and tell on hammer forming
so here is the form made out of some old form ply i had laying around and some mdf offcuts for packers

checking to make sure i make the right one this time :-[

cut the blank with plenty of extra to allow for stuff ups about 30mm is plenty

clamped and in the vice

now start to bend it over with a hammer i did the back first because it has a single bend and helps to hold it in place when i do the other side

then on to the other side bend it over to about 45 with just a hammer

then start dressing it down with a ball pein hammer and a bolster chisel thats had the end radius and the edge taken off

then do the last bend

dress it up and were done by the way this section is 1.5mm and takes some real beating to get it to move



and heres the bottom of the quarter i have been playing with


enjoy folks Cheers Gav
