Default Re: My concept for the general Vee

I made a new sail panel with a cardboard template and a plasma cutter. I used the cardboard and the cutting guide. Cuts fast and clean.

Then I took it over to the english wheel to make some long passes across the length of the metal. This gave me the compound curve I was looking for to get a nice smooth transition off the back of the quarter panel into the roof under the drip rail.

I had to do a few checks with the curves then put it through the wheel a few times. Trying to get it to fit nicely with out having to force it into place. I tacked it all up and and need to make a decision on the rail at this time before I head into the door area. Not sure yet. I think this is a good time to go back to capping off the door jam area.
