Well... I need to make a simple vent cover.
And I'm terrified of the belly pan! :0)

Aerowood, Where do I start? Aside from all of the basics of buck riveting and cutting panels, I would love to see how a new wrap is made, as well as the use of a shrinker/stretcher.

Kip, maybe we could work in some form blocks and 3003 soft aluminum and show how to make these curved pieces without an english wheel. Bring your roller!

I guess it's time I sprang for some nutplate tools...

The vent stacks on my '58 look like hell. How about some instruction on how to make new ones?

This was a great demo.....

Kip is a Aircraft Sheet Metal mechanic - he is incredilble in his knowledge and we are so lucky to have him. You name it and he can do it with metal.

Chris would like to see making compound curves because he's going to be doing a new front headliner in our trailer. Anything we learn will be a bonus and appreciated!

Here's a pic showing the vent stacks. Sorry, it isn't a close up. The two stacks are on the left.

Yeah!! I'd looove to make one!
Or at least see one...

Also, I am going to take the forward inside end cap out- it's fiberglass. And wanted to make aluminum segments, like the rear. Maybe those aren't really a "fabrication"?

questions, questions...

Wow, Shari. Those are beautiful. I assume you made those? Or did you have somebody make them for you? Mine look like they're 52 years old.
