This is Ron Covell's first video, now considered a classic. Watch Ron go through every step of making a track roadster nose, demonstrating techniques suitable for making virtually any body panel. He starts with a station buck defining the shape and shows clearly how the patterns are made. Then, he starts shaping each piece and joins them together. Annealing, mallet and sandbag rough shaping, hammer and dolly smoothing, metal finishing, and both oxy-acetylene and TIG welding are covered in depth. If you have never seen metal shaped by hand, you may be astounded to see how simple the process is!
