education forward, project backward

After totally running out of the project schedule, at least some collection of know-how took place. Once more I spent a week at a hands on class. This time it was about aluminium forming and, most important, welding with the torch. The result is a Jaguar XK 150 rear wing.

On the Flaminia body there is some setback, as I noticed that the lower lip of the mouth does not have the correct angle from top to bottom, it has to be made again and the lower corner bits have been removed already.

On January 7th I asked about the small panel inside the front wings (see pic 1). My first idea was, that it might be used during production to fix parts on a frame before welding them together and slide them off the support later.

When I was in Vienna I had the chance to inspect and drive an unrestored and original Coupé. It is weird, but we were jumping around this time capsule like children, and the owner insisted on lifting the car with the on bord jack. The jack has a rubber cushion with which it touches the painted front wing when cranking the car up. The questioned panel is right where the cushion touches the wing. It is a reinforcement placed inside the wing merely for this purpose.

Also started the manufacturing of the new lower lip panel. It is not finished yet, but the bead roller was seriously used for the first time. You my choose an upper die with a certain radius, in order to achieve slightly round corner like on the original. A lot of time was spent on making more precise patterns and very exactly cut sheet.

Wirklich superfeinste Arbeit Hubert !!
Wie bist du mit deiner neuen Magnet-Abkantbank zufrieden ??
Funktioniert das Ding in der Praxis auch wirklich mit dem Magnet bzw. bis welcher Blechstärke ?
Möchte mir eventuell eine 2 Meter-Ausführung zulegen.
Danke und VG
Bernhard
