A couple pics

I made a little more progress tonight.

One of the difficulties I was having, when shrinking inside the scallop, as it tightened the metal, it was changing the slope of the ramps going in and out of the scallop.

After less than stellare success, I tried heating the metal with the shrinking disc, then while it was warm/hot I used two dollys to persuade the metal to go where I wanted. It actually worked fairly well.

I think I have about another 4-5 nights work to get everything exact, where I can use an absolute minimum amout of filler.

Thanks for the tips
