Hey Vert,

I was thinking about your build plan as I was working on the fiberglass body mold for my build. I know you said you were going to use steel and I was thinking how hard it was going to be to get all these rounded curves in steel. Then I thought maybe it could be done with that paper modeling technique. I know there are some posts here that have built small scale tumblers using that method. Haven't researched the idea though.

Let me know what you discover is your research of this topic.

There are many techniques for making rounded curves in metal.
Metal working sculpture artists have used many of them for 2500 years.
casting
heating and bending
heating and stretching with hammers
heating and forge welding and many more.
plus
Some modern methods
Cutting bending and rewelding
planishing and many others
and
many hybrid methods such as using steel forming and shaping methods together with Bondo
or another such as using steel methods with fiberglass, epoxy, wood, lab metal clay, JB Weld, etc., etc.......

Vertigo & Slysnake,

Have you investigated blow molding aluminum? Many 2005/2006 Ford GT aluminum body parts were blow molded and the tooling was surprisingly cheap, even by our non-manufacturer standards.
