Well the Date is almost here , and im a little surprised theres not a few more chopping at the bit to get to spend some time with one of the greatest metal shapers .

John , Denis , Neil , Wayno and mate, Mark and my self have put hands up , but others don't be afraid to drop by or feel your skill set is stopping you this is a great opportunity to learn from Peter.

and pickup a few quality tools as well

Cheers see you Saturday

sorry to hear that mark, hope you feel better soon

i think a good day was had by all, amid the joking around some actual metal shaping took place, as usual peter was running around keeping an eye on us all, just to check we were keeping to his instruction in traditional method panel beating. which is why he did about 20 kilometers of walking lol

checking again with the buck, closing in on the shape and fitment, getting the reverse in which flows in to the door area, tricky shape but it was achieved by blocking and wheeling above the wheel arch area, then letting out the shape at the door edge to create the reverse
