From the Porsche archival photos I see here and have seen elsewhere, there appear to be different bucks for different aspects of the coach work.

For instance, one type of buck for fabrication of the panels and another different one for joining/welding the small panels into large ones. The previous photos seem to show both of these two types.

Wow Kent, I didn't even know there was a difference! Thanks for that, and it makes sense. Great input!

Neil nice picture!
I dont understand exactly what he's doing?
Stupid question perhaps but can you explain?
I see him welding but that set up to control warpage?

I've seen a bunch of Porsche archive photos and video's, but never that.

I'm always amazed at how the factory welds are disappeared with no undercut whatsoever. Now penetration is a different story...

I'm sure it would cost a buck or two :-)

I was initially going to make a plywood buck for a 550 but even with the stations 100mm apart it was going to cost Au$1000 at least. So I am now opting for a basic plywood frame. It will consist of 4 lengthwise supports and around 4 stations across the car. Then I will bolt wire portions in between the plywood.

It is a big job no matter what.
