Thanks for posting the link. Ruge is one of the better teachers. His is direct in explaining the "READ" the metal needs. Next he shows you how to push/pull the metal to shape desired.

In his video he shows using aluminum foil to make a pattern. I also use heavy gauge aluminum foil to make a pattern but I add hot glue lines in a grid pattern to keep the shape. Works great on small and large patterns

I am working on a couple of ‘36 Ford fenders to repair rust. I made a pattern to use in the repair. Here are some pictures of making the pattern.

I use aluminum foil only as a base layer. Prevents tape from sticking.
Question :
1. Will strengthening with glue allow you to straighten the foil?
2. What will you find out from such a template if you don't straighten it back to the desktop?
3. My opinion. In most cases, the template shows the places where it is necessary to bend and shape. Please explain the next procedure according to you.

The hot glue is flexible allowing the pattern to be flattened.
I will cut the templet along the sharp raised corner to allow the templet to flatten out. The pattern can be glued back together to check the development of the final shape.
