wow you are really making a superb job of this build. This is going to ( does ) look amazing. Although I have to say that all eyes would be on that beautiful lady in the purple, WOW is that your wife . Good luck with the rest of the build although you don't need it. I can't wait for more photo's ( of the car ). Where did you get your hammer from was it Ebay?. Thanks . UFO17.

The Lady in purple is the daughter of a friend of mine, it was her dream being brought to the graduation ball with the Countach! ;-)

Yes, the hammer I got from ebay, 100 plus shipping, the english wheel cost a bit more, around 550. But it is definitely worth it.

I did some tests yesterday with exchanging the solid wheel from my english wheel to a polyurethane one (pinched from a heavy load carrier), and the results were amazing.
I was able to easily bend the area around the blister, did the corners with the planishing hammer, and wheeled it afterwards with the solid wheel to partially stretch it and smooth it out.
I am pretty satisfied with the result as it was the first attempt, but have a look yourself!

Alex - This is seriously impressive work.

Your car is going to be spectacular when it is finished.

Good luck, Paul.

Default DIY English Wheel

Hi, I remember a guy named Rorty in Australia sold plans for making various metal forming tools, including an English wheel. He also was big on off road buggies. A quick google yielded this new site:
http://atkinsonracetechnology.com/rorty-plans-prices/

an article on making one:

Woow, Ross
I was looking for a technical drawing like this one for weeks and did not find any, I gotta buy this one! It is A3, big enough to get all the measurements I need!
Since now I was only working with photos!
Thanks very much Ross!

Default book on Dino 206s

Hi, there is also this expensive and rare French book on the Dino 206S. It has drawings - in fact I think the inside of the cover is made of blueprints.

Under the ISBN number ending ...108 this book is also on amazon.de, but without a price or a way of ordering. It appears also on amazon.fr, again without a price, but there is a button to click on to receive an email when it comes back into stock.

Some updates:

I finished the bonnet and put it on the car again, and this really looks like a step forward:

Then I started working at the lower rear panel with the 29 slots, I wheeled two pieces of sheet metal to threedimensional curvature and welded them together, and started to cut out the slots...what a pain in the a...!







but at the end I felt it was worth the work:



I was afraid that the panel will loose its stiffness with cutting that many slots in it, but amazingly it remained stiff, I guess due to the threedimensional curvature I gave it before!

After that I was working at the panels for the taillights:

I cut two pieces of wood with identical circular holes in them, and put the metal between them like a sandwich.
And than I was hammering by hand inside the circular top hole to give the metal a deflection for the integration of taillights and I was surprised it was really working out!



looks good outside:

The last thing I did was the panels around the taillight panel, and this is really a step forward...with the almost finished metalwork of the bonnet and tail I feel like I have done the most difficult and significant parts of the Dino:
