make/repair body panels

Recommended Posts

I recently came across this:


I've made hundreds of paper patterns for panel work but this is new to me.  This relies on you having a good part to copy BUT it can be the other side of the car.

Here you lift the actual 3-D shape from a double curved panel.  I've always just worked this in by eye and checked with flat templates on the extreme parts.

I don't think this will work on every panel shape.  Some of the TR ones are actually pretty flat. But it's an interesting method.
