Thanks again, all the shrinking and stretching of the alluminum is truly by hand (mallet and stump/sandbag) and english wheeled to final smooth and shape, though the wheel only puts a very small percentage of the shape into a panel.  We do not have a pullmax, but I have used one myself and it would be great if we did.  There is no wood in the final car on this build, the entire buck or form is still intact for future use.      I like the super hero bit Frosty, the car has a fantasy type quality to its look, I was thnking of a photo with us builders in the car with suits and hats  holding a tommygun and sawed off sie by side.  But the superhero image I am imagining is better.
