Fantastic visual description of some very nice work. A couple of questions.

he orange magnets seem like a really nice tool to have, can you share the source of those and give any details about them?

The bluing on your weld, is it to see the low spots as you planish the weld?
This is a great idea that I've not seen, but could be very helpful in finishing a weld, if that is what it's for? What is the process to keep seeing that you are not over shaping, do you keep reapplying the bluing? maybe you could explain in some detail for those of us less knowledgeable. Home hobbyist.

Super nice work, Scott.
Those "plaster" profiles sure came in handy for the corner pieces.
Nice cold shrinks with the mallets.
And the "pin" clamps are old school items I don't see used much anymore but they sure do hold tightly - if block holes are still crisp!

The double-up beadroll move is fun!

Love those profile dies and the serious recip machine giving them squish.
You got the top ironed and filed out nice, and then the new panel flowed right on in....back side is clean too - (very nice not to see pick marks and harsh tool marks back side ).

Gold Star work, Scott, and great to see the steps so clearly documented.

That means a lot coming from you.

The "plaster" profile is just body filler.

Kent what do you mean by "pin clamps"?

Thanks Chris,

The orange magnets are just a magnet pushed inside a 3D printed holder that I came up with nothing special.
The magnets came from aussiemagnets.com.au.


You are correct Chris the blue (marking blue) is to keep an eye on the highs and lows as I am planishing and filing the weld and heat affected zone and yes I keep reapplying the blue as I go.
I will try to put together how I go about finishing a weld at some stage, I think some one would have covered the process on this site some where.
Chris I am only a home hobbyist myself I just practice practice and more practice .
