Fabulous work Dutch. There's a couple metal shaping group web sites in the USA. Are you aware of them?

yes I`ve been on some, but as inspiring as some may be, I never feel at home at any of them. I dunno... to much blah for me.

wow, time flies... blew the dust of off the trike started swinging hammers again.

I was a tad intimidated by shaping the hole for the trunk lid. The best and easiest way to do it would be to make the weatherstrip channel first, fix it onto the buck and shape the rest to fit the channel... but.... I started with a rough shape and location and size of the lid were unknown at the time.

So, what I did today was beat the edge down so the lid would fit. Next up is the actual channel which will be welded to the backside of the lip I created today... makes sense..? anyway, goal is nice fit and dry trunk.

Put my new Eckold hand held planisher to work today and I love it. Ergonomics are great as is controlability. Work pressure is really low at 35 -50 psi max. That`s really nice because the air compressor keeps quiet most of the time.

Been restoring a bunch of tractor sheet and midcentury design lighting ( my other illness...) in the past months but I`m glad to be back at working new sheet. I need to pick up the pass with this bike

The thing about a '39 Ford pick-up is that that ugly grille kinda' grows on ya' after a while.

Not taking anything too seriously.
