Ultimate Sheet Metal Fabrication provides the information you need to build your own sheet metal parts from steel or aluminum. From simple handwork with a hammer and dolly to sophisticated shaping done with large power tools, it's all here. Eleven chapters cover: Design and Layout, Tools and Materials, Welding Sheet Metal; and Fabrication Sequences with skilled craftsmen like Ron Covell, Steve Davis and Bob Munroe. Over 350 photographs document the creation of a motorcycle fender, an automotive fender, part of an airplane cowl, a deck lid for a hot rod, and the body of a pedal car. In an age when most products come off an assembly line at the rate of hundreds per hour, an increasing number of individuals yearn to build a fender, a hood or side cover with their own hands. Whether you're restoring an old Packard, building a unique Hot Rod, customizing your Harley-Davidson, or trying to keep an old biplane in the air, the parts you require can't be purchased from a catalog. This book covers the methods you need to build those fenders, side covers, and deck lids.
