Working on the door sill. It has the style line,door gap return and a step up to the floor that is at a angle swoopy thing with a long curve. Hard to describe and tougher to make. After many failures i think i'm half way closer.
Half the style line profile goes in first then multiple steps on the tipping wheel and lots of clampy things i had to make to turn each return over with a hammer. Stamped parts can be tough to replicate by hand.......at least for me

That's thinking out of the box. I think that just might do the trick, take your time to keep the lines straight .
Good luck and keep us posted on the process.

Today i worked up a full lower sill with style line. Untrimmed and not welded up. Looks pretty good.

Once again, thank you very much Ray for sharing.
For me, this thread and your work are really becoming a reference.

Great the way you think out of the box to solve problems.
Reading your posts helps me to see that there is always a way to overcome the hurdles.

So my clampy things work great. But i ended up bracing the backs some to keep them from flexing when i really needed to suck'em down. Better now.
