Ferrari 250 GTO Sofa

Hi.

So as the title says I will post the process of making the rear section Ferrari 250 GTO and making the sofas.

I work as a metal shaper / fabricator in a car restoration and race car workshop.

Some of my works can be seen on my facebook page: https://www.facebook.com/atelier.senad/

Handmade aluminum bodywork, in old school mode, will be a challenge but also a fun way to do something nice

At the beginning I made a CAD design with all the necessary dimensions.

The rear part will be on the 1/1 scale to the genuine car.







Basic frame construction.
