I have a 5' x 8' capacity CNC router and would be willing to help you in any way possible if needed. I realize Cleveland Ohio is quite a ways from CA but just wanted to make the offer.
Eric: I've already committed the job of cutting the buck stations to a local CNC cutting business. I'm still trying to figure out a cost effective way to get the hammer form sections shaped/cut though. Please PM me your contact info if you think you might be able to help with that.

PM sent.

I have not made it through the whole thread yet so I apologize if its been posted but where did you get the CAD data to make the buck pieces? Did you have access to a car like you did with the C5 GTO? Was it all extrapolated from your modified pictures?

Dan Palatnik, dan.palat@gmail.com is the CAD professional who did all the modeling. I started by purchasing a 3D model of a Miura SV from Squir.com. Dan fixed up a few defective details (e.g. wheel openings) on that model to start. He then stretched for longer wheelbase, widen the track, modeled in the Corvette windows, etc. We then iterated a few times to optimize the visual proportions on the upsized Miura. Once we were happy with the look in the 3D model, Dan sliced it and modeled the buck stations from there.

From my experience, I highly recommend Dan Palatnik for this type work. Even though he's remote, he's a great communicator, really knows his stuff, and his services are very reasonably priced.
