i have seen that machine from Jen's thread and i just wonder if it's possible to do without it. Are you sure that it was done without that machine? it's very precised...

No, I'm not sure at all, but if you'd seen this guy work you'd have no trouble believing it can be done by hand .

I know that at least some of my arch was done by hand, he showed me how he had to cut the piece to be able to curve it around and how many edges were left to weld up.

He definitely used special tools to help shape and bend the metal. The thing is, he still does all of this from scratch, by hand. Basically that arch was made same as mine, only he had to cut the metal in sections on the inside where it attached to the fender in order to weld the piece to the car. This is because he was working with a larger area vs. the smaller area of rust he had cut from my car.

Funabashi, imo, you would at least need some sort of machinery in order to get those lines so straight. I used to play around in my dad's shop and bend his scrap sheet metal and I couldn't imagine getting those lines without any aid.

Amazing work! My coupe bodywork took me 5 weeks beside work at my shop. I did everything by hand. Very time consuming work if you wanna do it right!
