Default My First Complete Panel

image.jpgMy first real post here and I thought I'd share my first full panel. I have a 68 Alfa Romeo Giulia Super that had a hit in the right rear and needs a bit of love. It needed a right rear quarter and rear/ valance panel. I had a rear cut a friend gave me and removed the two panels I needed. I then decided the valance was rubbish and thought I might have a crack making one. You can buy these from UK suppliers but figured you don't learn much metal shaping from buying new panels!
