As always, I really appreciate the kind comments guys. Thanks a lot.
I think I mentioned I had a friend pick me up a sheet of low carbon 18 ga cold roll a few days ago. Normally cold roll will have .18 to .25 percent carbon which makes it stronger but also stiffer and harder to form. The metal Jim ordered is .08 percent carbon.
I thought it would be interesting to make the passenger side foot well out of the low carbon metal and compare how they worked. It is too soon to know but they definitelyy have different properties. When I rolled these beads into this piece it drew it enough I had to run it through my home made slip roll to make it flat again. One cure for that would be to run the metal through the English Wheel and stretch the area of the bead so when you run it through the bead roller there is extra metal for it to draw from.
This is interesting and I am anxious to form my transition at the front of the drive shaft hump with the plannishing hammer and see how it forms. My guess is I am going to like this better for things like fender patches or anything that will have a compound curve.
I will keep you posted.

The driver's side foot well is basically made but it is just laying there. It will still require just a bit of trimming but for now it is time to move on to the passenger side.
Gettin closer to that trunk floor.
