Got my hood buck done, painted with gloss orange rattle can to better check the shape.

Ended the day with a zip cut and hammer to the buck....

What am I missing? After you made that buck you have already made the metal pieces so you don't need it anymore? Or did you pull a mould off it? Why is it not needed anymore?

I sometimes lose my train of thought halfway thru something....................oh yeah, the buck.

The shape was whacked. I wanted a pointier snout on the hood but the transition with the radius tighter to the front and changing to a larger radius two feet back looked wrong so I have some adjusting to do.

Been at it all day and not even one side adjusted yet...grrrrrr........

In the pic below, you can see how the light reflection is following thru the radius properly.

The shape I had yesterday was not like this.

Ahhhh, I got you. Making patterns is time well spent isn't it?

Yep. Found a big issue.

I got half almost done on the fix up. I will use a half buck to make the panels. Just have to flip the flexible pattern inside out to do the opposite side.
