I finished cutting a bunch of slices and tacking them together to roll in to the headlight.

I had to remove the first template I made as it was 20 ga and stared warping as I added tacks. I made new templates from 1/8" thick galv sheet with angles spot welded to the back to keep them really stiff.

I will eventually cut all this mess off after I learn how to shape a pce of 20 ga metal to fit into the fender.

Thought I'd screw the bezel onto the plate to see how it would look and I feel these lights are gonna look great on this car.
I will finish trimming and tacking it all tommorow and then try to figure out how to do the left side of the light.

I made a bunch of slices in the fender from the light back and started trimming and tacking them to a flat plate shaped the same as the bezel.

Uh-Oh. So much for the simple metal shaping. It looks like I'll be hanging around the Metal Meet forum for tips on how to go about this problem.

I played around with the grill mockup some more today. I shaped a small pce for the center area and found it was quite simple.
This what you see is mockup and will not be my final grill section.
