05-05-2004 09:48 AM Slapping that old girl
Gene went on to tell us about slap files. Kind of like a slap hammer but its a file. He explained how to make your own, and how they work to shrink the metal. This guy really needs to write a book or make a video to pass on this legacy.

05-05-2004 09:45 AM The "Hog"
Gene proudly displayed his "Hog" for us. Sounds like a V-Twin with a cam. About as heavy as one too ! He demonstrated how to cycle the sander so as not to create heat/warpage, yet get the finish to come up quick. He explained about different papers and how to modify the papers to achieve different goals. I don't want to elaborate, because I don't feel it would be fair to Gene to go into great detail. He does the classes for income.

05-05-2004 09:41 AM Vixen
Gene uses the vixen on this fender to level off the highs and identify any low spots. He will work the Bullseye or hammer/dolly until its mint. The guy is amazing. Junk to Joy in minutes. Best part is he shows/tells you how to do the near impossible with next to nothing.

05-05-2004 09:38 AM Bullseye on Steel
Gene uses a Bullseye to raise a few indents to bring it all up to the same level. Man, he makes it look easy.

05-05-2004 09:36 AM Gaswelding the fender
Gene is tacking and welding the holes in the fender. He also demonstrates how the metal expands when heated, and returns to its natural state when cooled by itself. He also demonstrates how to "chase" the metal with a damp rag to help control the shrinkage. Again, you have to see it.
