Managed to get a day on the car this week and have made a couple of panels and started a third so moving on if not all that fast, but learning all the way especially on the English wheelIMG_20180827_145250268 (1).jpg

Hi I have had a bit of time on the car over the last couple of weeks and have managed to fit some more panels but slow process very steep learning curve on shaping panels on the English wheel etc. hope progress will speed up but I think the hard ones are yet to come.IMG_20180916_141445638 (1).jpg

In any build there are low points and even despair, but they will be overcome.
Keep at it , but sometimes just walk away and do something else for a while. Build a plastic aeroplane or boat then come back refreshed. If we weren't mad we wouldn't be here.

Astounding to be able to visualise then deliver such tidy design.

Wet weekend so got a good lot of hours on the car after putting up shelves for my daughter. Good brownie points so have managed to get six panels fitted to one side of the car, and quite pleased with the results for a change. still four more on that side but I think I will get the other side up to the same stage before I tackle them. Think I might have to coat the steel with some oil as a light surface rust has started to appear must be the weather. 20181014_132106 (1).jpg
