Thumbs up 40 Pieces

It interesting that the fender is made in so many pieces. But my thoughts are that the body and fenders would have been hand hammered. Then welded together. As I know it, there are three schools of metal work. Southern Europe and Italy it was all hand hammered. (I found this out the first time I stripped the paint off a Ferrari and found all the hammer marks and asked why, the joy's of youth.) Northern Europe it was Helve hammers and England was the English Wheel. Originating from making Armour.

Mike because of the nature of the job (guard) I probably would minimise just a few of the welds, but never the less there would be still a few pieces needed to make that particular guard

Having said that providing that the panels are right ,the welds are well done and smoothed out properly , file finished, one can do that guard in as many pieces as one likes depending on the individuals capabilities
Peter
PS the only thing I would change is the position of some of the welds

Great stuff, I can't get enough of a Bugatti, they have so much to learn from.

Size:  60.7 KBThe front bumper bucks were made from 4" round stock, 2" round stock and filled in with 3/8" plate which was reinforced with iron. The blanks are 14 gauge cold roll which had to be heated with the rosebud to roll around the buck. I drilled three holes to line up and hold the steel piece from shifting. The slots for the horn and the blank were cut with the water jet. It take about 8 hrs to shape and metalfinish for plating. The original pattern was made from ash and was shaped from a photo.

The rear bumpers were made on the Pull-max with delrin dies. The ends had to be stretched more than main part of the bumper and this was done with Kent White's hammer before rolling the ends.
