Default How to make curved panels with stepped inner panels

Occasionally, I see some panels like the one in this truck and wonder how it was made. My guess is you roll the panel, form it and then put the stepped inner designs in. Can someone enlighten me a little on this process?

It will be a similar process to my two threads. It is essential to no give hard blows so that the material can be processed until the end of the process. Stainless steel is very sensitive to hard blows.

With steel you can use heat after shaping the profile for last bend according the car.

A week ago I made 10 identical bumpers from 3mm stainless steel.
Each bumper was individually shaped. Deviations are minimal.

Thanks but that is not what I was talking about. I am interested is how they made the panel in front of the radiator. Maybe I didn't describe it properly. It is a bead rolling operation.

Maybe variations arrive at the same destination.
I see three panels and two weld seams.
Form blocks for the two stepped seams = pattern layout cut fit form fit trim weld planish fit.
Then some roll-bead work.
Gold plating?

Default One way to form this type panel

When I made this panel which has bead rolled elements on a curved surface, here's the sequence of steps:









So 1) bead roll insets, 2) add bends and curves, 3) weld up into the larger panel.

Nice interiors are a lot of work.
Planning and experimenting.
Also the headliners in one sheet of metal.

Nice work and good to see it here.

Very nice work, Joel.

So, what it think I learned is, "It depends." Sometimes to make the panel and thn roll the beads and sometime you roll the beads and then roll/curve the panels. Obviously, you can't run them through a slip roll. Thanks.

Funny thing - cutting chip board/poster board etc. various thickness/density puzzle pieces w/x-acto and st. edge/Fr. curves to make "filler surfaces" fitting depressed areas allows slip rolling of "quilted" flats.
