Bodywork Restoration Tutorial
This is a DVD designed to teach the skills needed to form and shape metal into sections or even complete panels using only hand tools. The skills shown are age old skills as used by English craftsmen for generations. There are twenty six chapters each on a different subject from welding using mig tig and gas, forming compound curves, flanges, curved radius, shrinking and stretching, wire edging lead loading and creating swages, to list just some of the skills shown.

These short clips should give you a feel for the content of the DVD:

I'm on board with that! Please consider making a series of DVS with more advanced techniques.

David, I also received my DVD in very fast time. I really do enjoy watching it. You have obviously a gift in metal shaping but you are also gifted at teaching. Your explanations were easy for me to comprehend. I think this DVD was worth the money. I am the kind of person who enjoys reading educational material if I am interested in it. Being able to watch this DVD was even better.
I see that you sprayed a primer on your rear quarter (wing) and then you welded without removing the primer from the weld area. What type of primer was that?
Thanks again.

x3!! on more DVD's. Like I told you in our talk David I do hope you get rich off this! There is nothing wrong with making money.

I do have a question though, I watch your video at least once a day. When making a swag how to do gauge how faraway from your template line do you make your line where you actually hammer? When making that swag where you used the plain steel flat bar it looked like a 1/4" gap between the two lines. Thanks

Hi Chris.
I would match it to the piece you are trying to recreate.

Thanks to everyone for your kind comments. I am very glad you liked it!

I guess my question was really how do you know where to start working it so you don't actually cut the metal like a sheer or like you do in the vise when you cut a section out? Is that kind of a feel or was there something more scientific...

When I am cutting the bolster I am using is sharp and held tight to the angle iron, when I am forming I use a bolster which has been dulled and leave a space equal to that on the original panel.
