look up Williams Low Buck Tools on the net..there's an article in Speedway Illustrated about the company..they have a new system ,I guess that would be about the best way to call it,that has an English wheel in the line-up along with about 9 other different tools that inter-changes on the main jig that you build and then bolt on the different tools..for instance a louver press,a planishing hammer, a roll former and a bunch of other stuff...I know most,if not all of the younger guys on here probably can't afford this set-up right now..maybe down the road a piece,like the saying goes..but I'll throw this info on here for the rest of the board who might be looking for a cheap system for sheet metal work...the site iswww.lowbucktools.com
that looks REAL good, downright awesome. you thought about using the bed off an old ford or dodge step side truck? for the bedsides that is? looks alot like one of the old datsun trucks? should be a lot of fun once you get done

Nice work dude! I like the bug truck idea! The fenders look great!
I'm about to start welding mine hopefully this weekend. Today I had our machinist cut 3" stripes from the sheet metal I bought. I'll post the progress of the fenders. I'm thinking the later model fenders will be harder to widen because they have more curves to them.
