Thanks for taking the time to do these. I still prefer the curved lip.

You can see why the 41 is considered ugly by some.... the car has some nice coup-y curves are that are flowing and in good proportion, but when you look at adjacent shapes from most any angle, you can find something that looks flabby or baggy nearby. The final thing for the rear 3/4 would be a little fender tuck to make the bottom of the rear fenders answer to the new proportions and flowing lines of the curved trunk lip.

This really helps me with a visual I can shoot for since I have work that needs to be done in the area.

No sweat, it was play time. I like the curved one much better too. Straight might be easier but as you pointed out, the body needs all the help it can get with visual flow in that area. Ford probably went with the skull knocker design because the alternatives aren't simple.

Maybe you can manipulate the modified images to suit you more readily as well.

Looks like about everything you need to know has been covered quite well and in deal. Wonderful thing about this Forum !!

If you don't have the Panel Clamps, I highly recommend get a few plus a coupe of strong magnets. I use the panel clamps as much as possible to keep sections alignment and I make a few Tack's, they set the Gap perfectly.

I weld so infrequently that I brush up wit ha few YouTube videos, esp Mr TIG for TIG of course.

Same goes for Metal Working. If you've never watched a Lazzie (Lassie) Video's I highly recommend some evening sessions at his website. His Tips and Tricks are amazing, esp the Bead Roller and English Whee;

LAZZE Metal Shaping Classes and Videos

Good Luck

Yes, Thanks for all the useful info in line with this topic and all the work being documented in so many different categories.

I went today to HF to pick up a set of those panel clamps. Thanks for the reminder on them. I was trying to get 25% off the shrinker/spreader combo today, but they were sold out.
