Ever considered doing repros of the leading edge of the engine compartment? All four of my truck bodies have smashed and torn features. I'm not looking forward to trying to get a good surface on these with a hammer and dolly. Maybe I can make a form tool for use behind them....dunno.

A standard railroad dolly works perfect on that area.

Railroad dolly? Shaped like railroad track top?

We've made the straight portion of that area before. Haven't had many requests for it. If you need some pieces let me know.

Thanks Rick. Guy, let me see if I can do it with a dolly. Otherwise I may be in touch.

Test pieces for A2 rear crossmember were formed up today. A few minor adjustments but it's close. The contoured edge for the tail light mount will be stitched welded on. Those pieces were "lost in the mail". Should have tomorrow. Also have the A1 tail light mount at programming.

A1 tail light bucket. Obviously not welded but this should be acceptable. I didn't want to invest in special tooling for the tail light wires bulge. Will do a few minor tweaks but nothing major. As I remember there is a deflector bracket that covers this as well.

Since I'm replacing the passenger side panel on an A1, I also wanted to replace the fender top at the same time. Who has one and ships it that same afternoon? Guy comes thru once again. Always a pleasure to do business with him and Cameron Manufacturing.
