    Thank you very much for the great comments.Regarding "tricks and tools"I don't really have any !!!!!.Honestly I don't have any fancy tools like a Trumpf ,Eckold or Pulmax machine I do have a fairly well equipped home work shop but sheet metal fab tools amount to a Frost shrinker /stretcher a cheap bead roller and a 4ft folder .The rest of my armoury amounts to hammers ,dollies and various odd bits of scrap metal to beat 7 bells out of and hope the part comes out how I wanted it to be !!!!!!!!!!!!.Thanks again.

    Cheers markeyb....I was thinking more a picture of the dollies that you use for the forming. I'm always on the look out for new ideas...I do a lot of ply templates for forming work myself...just interested in what bits you've collected.

    I was going to say that your lack of fancy tools gives us all hope...but then, I look again at your skill set....ya just cant buy that!

    Ok ..........straight to the point .
    The opening was made by forming the two sides and the two ends .They were tacked together to form a rectangle then the corner sections were fabricated by welding the three pieces together .Then cut into the rectangle , fully welded and the hammered and filed.Hope that makes sense ?????????. weld.jpg
