496CHEVY3100 Great work John ,the smaller pieces sometimes take more time than some of the larger pieces,some people look at them with no idea how long it took or how complicated the compound curves and steps can be,

John long Today I played around with making a patch for the rusty places beneath the windshield. Without pulling the windshield from the parts car I could not tell whether it had good replacement pieces and just did not feel like climbing under the dash to do it.

First I made a template of the compound curve.



Next I broke the angle by running the pieces through the tipping die of my bead roller



Using the shrinker/stretcher jaws i formd the curve into the angled pieces.



I have an old piece of scrap iron that has a round end that is curved. Using that and a plastic mallot i formed the contour of the detail that is under the stainless trim.



These pieces will need quite a bit more tweaking and trimming but you can at least tell where I am going with it.

I have not checked the doner car yet. I am anxious to to so.

Is your parts car better below the windshield to provide donor pieces and the lower dash too ?
