    so i thought i would take pics of the last piece for this nose piece, i first shrunk the edge with the thumbnail dies in the jiggly machine, then blocked out the centre with my pear shaped mallet, first roughed out with the small end then leveling out the rough shape with the large end before going on the wheel

    much smoother, and much easier to put through the wheel



    thanks for watching

      Thanks for the picture of your mallet, Neil. Just started turning mine on the wood lathe here & hope to be using them soon.

        I took a short video while turning the car around a couple of weeks ago, I posted it on my instabrag and thought it would be good to share with you guy's. I do have a little adjustment to do on the left side but the inner panels are all welded in and solid

         
        thanks neil

          Nice to see it all around, Neil.

          Maybe you posted his in another thread and I missed it- how did you settle on this 356 as a project? Are you a long-time Porsche person, simple opportunity, ? Just curious.

            it's just simply been my favorite car, i had a 356 coupe model car bought for me for my 21st. even then i had loved them for years, i still have the model today along with a couple of others now. moving and working to australia has given me the opportunity to buy one and restore it. just love them
