Bodywork skin part 2

The cowl in front of the driver has been completed but like the rest of the bodywork, not yet fitted. In the pictures below you can see the transition from a loosely shaped piece to the fully formed shape. At one stage the panel is quite clearly hammer formed then smoothed out by the English wheel.

It still looks a little strange for a moment because there is around 3″ of spare material that will at a later stage be formed around the tube, for now you will have to image that there is no 2nd slope in the cowl…
