The metal shaping forums have lots of info on how to put a crown in a flat sheet. try metalmeet, metalshapers assocation. and there are a few other metal forming sites , I took a class at UVU, street rod panel fabrication, and a weekend with Ron Covell, David Gardiner in the uk has some good info on his website, and sells DVD's working with simple hand tools.

It's easy to put too much crown in a panel, then have to bring it back . Here on Hotrodders, Cboy has written an eBook, "the scratch built hot rod," click at the top of the page. When I go south for the winter I plan on building new doors for the 29 Nash roadster. an amazing build is Chris Davenport's 40 willys, all aluminum body he built as a student at UVU.. Google "Chris Davenport 40 willys"
