Default Amazing quality

I saw this buck at Dans 56 meet. The post pics don't do it justice. It is a work of ART! I consider myself lucky to have had the pleasure to meet and learn from such talented people. Thanks to all in this (community) who share the skills and knowledge they have.

Thanks Again Guys

Nice job Will. Would you know what 3d scanner was used to create the image of the guard?

Just got these items back from the water jet guy. On Jim's last visit for Peter's class we discussed making another 'partial' headlight buck that would include the edges at the front for the multiple tipping that is required at the front of the bucket to attach the headlight bezel. I also had made a metal countour gauge to test the outer contour as well as an inside gauge to use in cutting the radius of the inner edges of the buck. I took advantage of the extra Baltic birch plywood to make a prototype dash panel for use in setting up the dash area components.

Made some updates to the headlight buck per Jim's suggestion. Jim, Peter and I were discussing hoe to form the double 'step' required at the forward end of the headlight, and we came up with this decision. Andrew Slater (SWT) welded up the post and a 90 degree adaptor to be able to 'hammer form' the 360 degree contour by rotating it in the holder.
