WOW! I'm assuming by the clean metal you use the true restoration tools like planishing hammers and what not? Nice work. Always wanted to dive deeper in that realm but jobs are kind of scarce for that kind of work. Much respect.

Tec,He completely hand built that whole nose from raw steel

it all starts off with making your own door bottoms and patchesthen rockers , if you love doing it you'll find a way, mostly on your own stuff or for others at a greatly reduced price just to get the work in the shop...theres classes all the time the guys at metalmeet can help you out a great deal....I think you'll love it and get addicted too.

I agree with the others Pugs. Simply amazing. Everyone is putting me to shame but at least I am doing something. I worked on the chipped paint on the cowl tonight The cowl was the only part I did not strip to bare metal when I built the car. Sure regret it now.

Thanks alot Brian.

I was hoping that the front end would look good to others as well as me. I don't buy into that line of bull that "its what you like that matters", lol.

Attached a sneak preview of how it will look with the hood on.
This was taken a few months back before the clip was done of coarse.

I use all hand tools and ewheel of coarse. Planishing hammer not so much as I'm still learning to use hand tools and where and how to hit. I used the P hammer improperly already and screwed up a big part. Duh.

Thanks Dead.

tech69: Start with a shrinker and stretcher, a beater bag, and a stump and play with some scrap. You don't even need a wheel to make parts. Of coarse alot of hand planishing would be req'd.

Is Santa Cruz near you? If you go to Metalmeet.com, you'll find they hold a meet there. If you go to the meet, you'll be done.

I agree with Dead. It's scary to fix up something looks so good already. I get overspray everywhere and mess things up fairly quickly when I get the gun out.

Sounds like you're having good luck with the Camaro. That's very unusual. When I have good luck like that, something huge is always around the corner ready to bite me. I hope you have better luck than me.

try photobucket and just copy and paste the last link option they give you. It's free and your pics will upload to the full size you want.

That's amazing you do that by hand. I'm picturing templates and a lot of measuring. When I got my house I KNEW the house my wife wanted wasn't for me cause I wanted the ones with a nice barn away from the house so I could do what I wanted in it, and I see it as a thorn in my backside, but I'll find a way. I'll check that site. Thanks!

Thanks when I get home tomorrow evening I will try that. I posted them in my profile album if anyone wants to go look at them there, but for some reason when I try to post them on this thread it tries for a while and the screen goes white..
