Work work work. I failed miserably in my first attempt to hammerform the floors. So after a minor regroup I started forming each floor section. I'm using a 3x rivet gun with a flow forming tool. I'm actually ahead of where I am in the pictures. I'm hoping to have the floors welded in and the car back on the ground in the next day or so. Then the real fun starts!

Got to keep in mind the TINBEATER is an extremely talented craftsman with a great deal of experience. Given the work you have done on your rig so far, I'd say you are on track to give him a run for his money in future. Keep up the progress !

Just my way of showing how impressive that thing is.

I'm much more of a designer than I am a builder. But thanks.

Well I really appreciate the compliments but don't beat yourself up. You should have seen some of the shit work I did when I was learning. The biggest thing is to find guys who are good and pick their brains. When I started out I would find the best guy in the shop and placate their egos and ask questions. The big thing is to do what they tell you to do. I LOVE teaching guys but man it pisses me off when I show a young guy some technique just to have them blow off the advice with some comment about "that's not how I do it." I was blessed while at Honda R&D in that there were guys who wanted to be taught and I was able to get them dialed in on their TIG welding to the point they were brought in on the NSX project. That felt nice. Guys who had ego's coming in didn't last a week. So just take your time work clean and you'll get there. BTW, I think your car is coming along nicely! So keep it up.

This is a flow forming tool. There are better ones out there by TM tecnologies but this is what I have. It came with the rivet gun I got used on Ebay along with a bunch of rivet sets.

Cretin, Listen to Tinbeater and don't ever think what you have done is not good enough to show here. I can't begin to tell you how many times we remade parts on the Fernon Chop because we were not happy with the way they came out or we said to ourselves I wonder if this would work and then it fails miserably. Believe me, you only get to see the end results of what we have done but there have been plenty of embarrassing things we have made.

The thing is to not give up, and don't ever try to compare yourself or your work to someone else, what you may think is complete shit may be the best thing to someone else or spark an idea that someone has been struggling with. This site is full of people that are here to help.

Sorry for the Hijack, I just get very emotional when someone puts dimple die panels in a frame. Awesome work on the car Tinbeater...

Why do you have to "put your two cents in,"
but it's only a "penny for your thoughts"?
Where's that extra penny going to?


Just remember saying I'm sorry and appologizing are the same thing.
Unless you are at a funeral.

It's all good. So many people I have met in the world who talk like they know cars, that they build cars. So many are totally full of shit. I'm floored when I see true quality work.

This is a great build. Thanks for posting pics and passing on info of tools used. Threads like these are basically what inspired me to build my car. Wanted to try out all the metal shaping techniques I saw online...

Plus it's almost easier to start from nothing than to start with any projects in my price range these days.
