Default Top panels for hood

The top panels are 54" long so I bought some 4x 10 sheets of aluminum and got 4 panels per sheet. My shear is 52" so it was a little tricky cutting them but by removing the fence and twisting them around I made it work. The dies I made for the Pullmax didn't hold up in delrin so I made them in aluminum. They made small marks on the deep parts but lightly sanded out. After making the body line on the side of the hood the panels were put in the slip rolls, slowly putting an even bow in them to match the cowl panel. The front of the hood has a real sharp bow in it to fit to the horseshoe grill so that will be done with the rubber tire on the wheel. Once that bow is put is done the final body line will be put in with brake. The lower hood hold down panels had been made out of .50 aluminum and were to light so I made them out of .90 and wooden hammer forms to shape the indents.

Possibly a dumb question...what is the streaked pattern on the metal in the 3rd from last picture?

The streaking pattern is from the thin paper they place between the sheets. It rained hard after I picked up the load of aluminum and the water ran between the sheets and dried that way but it sand off easily.

Outstanding! Any chance you have any pictures of the fixture set up for forming the "loop" in the hinges?

Default technic to bend hinges

Norson, These photos show the way it is done. I did them on a magnetic brake and a 3/8 steel rod. I first used the brake to wrap around the rod and then I removed the hold-down piece of the brake and tapped it down to finish wrapping it and turned the brake on and it flattened it out. I set the crease with a polished floor chisel. I used .032 brass so it was easy to bend.
