Continued on the left. I made a gauge to draw the panel. It determines exactly where the panel will be cut. It works very accurately.

Thank you, Dave. The gauge works perfectly. Today I showed it to colleagues who helped me.
They said it's always difficult to measure and it works perfectly for you.
I praised them again for their help and demonstration of the flame straightening of the sheet metal. We just did the whole back part today, including welding and partial sheet metal leveling. I still have to finish the leveling and pull down the upper surfaces a bit on Eckold. Welding added a bit to the volume. But really very little and on free space. Which is fun for the machine. But it takes peace of mind and give it boundaries. When I screw it to the body, we can continue to the front part.
They are quite large parts. Like Kent's planes.

Good to see your progress, Jaro.
Seeing your division line down the center suggests to me that you have Long Arms for the planishing of the weld seam.
Very good to see your progress.

Thank you guys. It's already quite successful. This car is going well so far. It had a break, but we didn't have to go back to anything. We are only just got car up on the supports and we continue.
Kent, I have long hands, but I won't need them on the center line. The center will be screwed into the wood and covered with a large fin. Is it a reconstruction of a race car from 30? years. Supported by historical period press. It will be and is being monitored.

Today bending the front of the dashboard. I used paper templates. In the case of the bottom plate, there was a large distortion - the difference between paper and reality. I had to throw away the first plate. The second plate was successful.
I made the first bend using a bead roller and Eckold. Further bends with the mallet. Lots of clamps.

Nice job Jaroslav. I see what you mean by a lot of clamps. Looks a good fit.
