I know that it should have been better with 2 machines, but my space for metal work is only 12 square meter so it is better with 1 instead of none
Lower axle was bending down little but that is ok now, so now i can use it and make some partsName:  DSC06211.jpg

First attemp hope you dont laugh to much
To much wheeling and shrinking i think, but it is only for fill the hole, better to work more when i start the fender build
Make this in 3 pieces, only to train much more now

You have done really well so far Leif, but I think using the shrinker and stretcher, is limiting your chances of getting enough shape.

Have a look on Youtube for films of people shrinking on a stump or tuck-shrinking.

Using these methods you can move a lot of metal fairly quickly and you can use your tucking-fork as well when working near an edge. Another advantage is that you can do it all with hand tools and not need any machines,

Cheers Charlie

PS If you haven't bought David Gardiner's, or Peter Tommasini's DVD's on shaping metal yet, then trust me, you will not regret doing so. The most basic of hand tools can be used to make anything!

Ty Charlie i am happy to get an answer.
My eyes are soon like rectangles , i look at so many youtube film about metalshaping and read so many thread here and got many hints. I have used hand tools many years so i decided that i want to learn how to combine that with machines, maybe i am to old(only 61) to make it but i must give it a try. I have heard folks say you are never to old to learn
Hope someone can tell the best to correct my issues or if it is better to cut the lower part

Maybe better to use air hammer instead
