Default Boattail Build

Spent the last 5 months building a boat tail for a narrowed model A roadster. It was my first power hammer project. The owner is coming to pick it up this weekend, hope he likes it.

Both the design and workmanship are spot on. It would look like a sack of walnuts if i did it. .

Thank you everybody for the kind words. My homemade power hammer did the shaping and I put the beads in on my homemade pullmax. Here’s a video of my little shop and the equipment.

I love your video Steve and the work you do.

Nothing is as good as being happy.

Cheers Charlie
