This is a step 2 class project in Metal shaping, we building a 36 Roadster body from flat sheet, 3 students per week making parts, left and right side symmetrical/uniform and putting all the parts together to a car body, it’s a lots of complicated parts to make and a lots of measuring to get everything right so all the parts fit and so the body looks right. Think about this when you look at those pictures, What we can do to a sheet is four things: we can cut, bend, shrink and stretch, that’s all we can do to a sheet and when you break it down to those four elements we can begin to understand Metal shaping and create what we want, this technique has no limitations, it doesn’t matter what we decide to do, we can do it because we controlling the sheet and it’s fun.. Next on the list for upcoming step 2 classes is a 32 5W Coupe……………….
The tools/machines we using is the Lazze’s English wheel, Bead roller and shrink/stretcher, hammer and dolly, and some other hand tools. For more info about the Hands on Classes, Online video training and tools/machines go to www.lazzemetalshaping.com
History of this Vehicle
None, the body we took templates from came from South Africa.
Plans for this Vehicle
Probably to make everything from the body to the fenders and runningbards, to complete all the Metal shaping part of it and to show people what can be done from flat sheet.
