    Great work, and thanks for sharing your methods. That is some awesome metal shaping!

    WOW, you certainly have the skill in metal forming Rich and it doesn't really matter whether it is a cheap Harbour Freight or Snap-On expensive tool, it is the ability to use them properly that gets excellent results and you have shown that you have that skill. I am not only enjoying this thread but learning from you too so thanks again for taking the time to post for us.

    Thanks guys, but I'm far from being a metal shaper. I do love to work with it though.

    A few years ago I wanted to press a Ford script into a panel, but could never
    make a pattern die that was good enough. I met a guy that has a CNC plasma
    setup who said he would cut one out no problem. The problem is 18 gauge
    warps while cutting because the pattern is so small. It took several tries, and
    I still had to straighten, and deburr the pattern, but we finally got it done.

    Her I have a piece of alum that I'm scribing the outline for reference.

    Opposite side.

    You can reverse the process, and imprint the die.

    I wanted to make a glove box door with the script. I cut a slightly over size piece
    of 19 gauge.
    [IMG][/IMG]
    I cut a 3/16" piece of plate the shape of the glove box door, and formed the
    script over it.

    Heres a pic of the plate on the back. It was a solid piece when I was forming it
    around the script. I cut out most of it before tacking together.
    [IMG][/IMG]
    Finished piece.

    Very Cool. Nice touch on the glove box. Makes this project even more uniquely yours!

    Thanks guys, it was a rewarding project.
    [IMG][/IMG]
    I chose Coker Smoothies for wheels, 15's front, and 16's for the rear.
    [IMG][/IMG]
    I used epoxy primer, urethane single stage, and clear from Eastwood with a cheap
    gravity gun. I plan on shooting the frame with the same stuff.

    My final choice for wheels, and tires. Rears are 16" x 7" w/4" back space, 245 75 R16
    Michelin Latitude Touring. Fronts are 15" x 5" w/3" back space, 205 65 R15
    Michelin Defenders. The rear end is 56" drum face to drum face.

    Rich, once again great work! Would you want to sell 3-4 panels with the ford stamped into them by chance?

    Ryan, I'll message you.

    Fender fit was very poor. I removed the reenforcements from the back of the fender.

    This area was really bad, cut it out, and reformed it.
