Default 1968 Ford XT Falcon Ute Restoration

Hi All,
I've just started restoring a Ford Falcon Ute and knowing nothing about cars and sheetmetal fabrication I thought I'd better do some research on what tools I'll need to get the task done. It looks like I'll need a Bead Roller and an English Wheel so this site looks like a good place to start
