Unless I have overdone the paracetamol I think it is an amalgamation of both the left and right quarters that is offered. That in no way detracts from the incredible skill of the man. Although I know there is the science behind it, I have always regarded this level of bodywork as a black art.

Thank goodness there are still people out there that are capable of this level of craftsmanship.

I am so jealous!!

Reminded me of the many happy hours I spent watching John Pitney at work on Modestine. The first two pictures are of the scuttle he made from scratch, the next two of the rear wing and valance he fabricated.

Bill Lewis's panels for the Fanalone were equally impressive.

Both now well beyond retirement age but John did train both of his sons who continue  the family tradition.

http://www.handbuilt.net.au/

Someone told me getting shape into metal is easy - as long as it doesn't have to match anything else!!!   I expect that might be a lot of the truth in those hand built cars where the "left side doesn't match the right".

What I liked was the way he did it in one big bit.  None of this "ten goes to get the window frame right" then to be added to the stack of bits to weld together at the end.  There's a lot of risk in craftsmanship at that level, a real show of confidence to be banging big dents into something which, part finished, was so nice and taken so long to get to that point.  No catch net.
