'57 overlander belly pans

Does anyone have advice for re-making the belly pans on the ends of a '57 Overlander? They are strangely shaped, and I'm not sure how to get a flat sheet of aluminum (such as from airparts inc.) to bend around the corners and look original.

They were a pain in the .......

I used 5052 .025 for the ends and .032 for the middle. Once you get the old off, you'll hopefully have a decent template to work with. Mine aren't perfect, but they are done. Just need to take time and have patience and after a month or so they'll be back on.

BTW, if you're going to document your resto here, and we hope you do, start up one thread for it and you'll have a bunch of people following your work. Easy to keep track of it that way.
