Personal Consultation for Aluminum Hood from Concept Car
Everyone can use a hand one time or another. A local restoration shop is building an aluminum body from scratch over a Corvette chassis. They started making a huge hood (measuring almost five feet square) and ran into a couple problems with the surface becoming warped after welding the two seams running through the center. They asked if I would give them a hand fixing it and they spent the day at my shop helping me stretch the weld seams and planish the entire surface smooth. It was a challenge because of the size of the panel, after hours of shoulder abuse with the portable planishing hammer we saved the hood.
