I've been back down to Cornwall UK for a bit more instruction from Geoff Moss at MPH Panels, this time I brought my own projects, one is the Cobra body I want to build.
I'm ok on the wheel, but felt I needed to refine a lot of things, before bad habits started to become the norm, Geoff put me straight

Loved to be able to do big panels with that much shape like that.

Nice panels Martin.

I don't see any shots of machining other than the wheel. Is that all that was used?

Hi Pugsy,

I did some stretching & annealing in the reverse at the headlight with some round tube, but all the remaining shape was created on the wheel. After seeing Geoff Moss create his demo panel in an hour, (mine took about 5hrs) it showed me that the wheel can work quickly in the right hands to create a lot of shape, without the need to belt it with a mallet.

Thanks for everyones positive comments.

DOH! I didn't even realize it was aluminum.
