Flattened out the model. Ready to cut out some new pieces.
I hope this works. :)

I love the hi tech CAD process you are using

I use CAD(cardboard aided design) all the time as well

just like john cash,your car is coming together one piece at a time

Lately itís been reasonable, about -15 F.


I suppose I could lay that out on gridded paper, scan it, and post it.  I donít need to sell that.  Good idea though.

Worked really hard, cut out the last bit of rust, and landed the rear quarters, ĎAí pillars, and window frame onto the fire wall and floor of the sedan.  Iíve waited a couple years to do this.

Rocker Panel Front Tip Pattern

Pretty rough, but if you print these on 11X17 paper, you've got a great start.  Remember, this pattern is for the passenger side.

Passenger side fender skirt attachment point, all formed up.

I can make a pattern now, no problem.

Driver's side.

A little better.

Practice makes perfect. :)
