panel with home made English Wheel

Attached are some pictures of one of the many panels that had to be made for my '36 Ford roadster. This car had been rolled or broadsided very hard. It had been repaired with lead which had generated quite a bit of rust. By the time the car made it into primer, I had reproduced most of the deck lid and all body sheet adjacent to the deck lid with the exception of the area immediately below it. I am not sure these pictures will sow how out of shape it was but hope you all find it of interest.

YEOW that was one ugly panel! Awesome job John, it looks great.
I don't have nearly as nice a wheel, mine was a "low buck tools" bench mount, pure junk with a horribly small lower wheel. I found an interesting tool at a swap meet once with a nicer wheel on it so I put that on my english wheel and it was a huge improvement. I made the deck lid on my brothers 22 Buick with it, though miles from the metal finished bondo free panel a real tin man would make.

On posting pictures you don't need to click on the little photo button on this site if you are posting from photobucket. You simply copy the link as you have and past it here. If you do that while clicking on the the photo button (yellow square with the mountains in it) you will be adding the [IMG] and [/IMG] before and after the link that already has them from photo bucket.

Thanks Brian. I'm still trying to master the art of pictures. I appreciate the help. BigEd36 has just posted screen prints showing how to post thumbnails. I have not gotten into the process yet. Hope it works with my IPAD. Sometimes having a Macintosh system will cause some complications.

Everywhere there was a high spot whoever fixed the car just beat it down with what appeared to be a 3 pound ball peen hammer. I bought the car out of South Africa. I new better but did it anyway. Got just what I deserved. Since They only made 3800 + roadster. My heart was set on keeping this one all steel.

BigEd36 posted how to set up Photobucket account for thumbnails. Believe I am on a roll now. Really appreciate the help that has been posted in that thread. Here is a shot of the panel roughed in.

Nice Work! I am just a little prejudiced about 36 Fords. Can't wait to see this one done, maybe you can start a journal. Dan

Thanks Dinger. It pretty well is done except for the rumble seat. Will post a "finished" picture later.

Stay with it Josh and keep us posted. All the knowledge in the world is useless without patience.

This is a shot of the replacement of the area around the deck lid. Whoever fixed the car before had welded drip rail with an ecetyline torch. Had it so shrunk up there was nothing else to do but replace it all.



Congratulate me. Finally got,the thumbnail to work. Thanks BigEd36

Just went to the link you posted for Josh. That is excellent. Explains really well what we were trying to tell him. I enjoyed that for myself. Several suggestions I will use in the future.... Thinning the filler with putty, Letting skim coat cure etc. I have added resin before. Makes it spread easily but I think it is more difficult to sand. Kind of a trade off. Thanks for the kind words about the car Brian.
