Thank you very much! I'm glad I'm able to share this project with others. There was very little original metal used.....just used it as a rough "guideline" and base to start either repairing or modifying from.

Thank you very much! That really means a lot. I'm 100% self taught through trial and error, research, taking ideas and techniques from what others do online, etc. I'm fairly "youngish" currently at 36 (this project was from about 2 years ago however) but have gained a large interest in shaping and forming metal over the years. When I shape projects I try to plan out according to my skill set and see how far I can get.
Rush too much trying to get to the end when the end is closer when you take your time.
