You are more than welcome to drop in, I'll show you what I can, no problem.
The metal shaping sites, Metal Meet & Allmetalshaping are great forums that specialise in this trade, very helpfull people.
Btw there is a metalshaping God up your way Andy Kissack, he was instrumental in setting up a restoration/panel beating course up at Leeds College, but he's now set up his own coachbuilding company here....www.andykissack.com
And this is link to the great man on the Tube...
I love watching that stuff. I can never BELIEVE how crap it looks after the mallet stage and how good it turns out. Like magic really.
