Thanks Peter for opening your workshop to us today I feel privileged to have the the opportunity to learn from you. For Neil and I to form a complicated reverse on a Ferrari body in under 2 hours is not a reflection of our skill but a reflection on your ability to share and teach the fundamentals that you drive into us over and over. I am not a metal shaper of any skill but have a love for the craft. We formed the panel with nothing but stretching and shrinking techniques. Areas that I would have previously shrunk before Peter taught us to take in to account where we would need to get the material from was a revelation No fancy tools. No fancy tecniques. No fancy dies. Simple tactical methods to form a panel. I wish others could share Pete’s love of this art and experience his passion, knowledge and skill. Thank you p for your 200k hour of experience. Cheers.

Peter is a true Master. Looks like it was a great event but a real bummer it was a few thousand miles away....

Any chance anyone could post names/usernames for all these smiling faces, just so the rest of us will know?

Well said John. I should get my paperwork in order and hop on a bus next time you are doing one of these.
