So with torch in hand l,ve been finding out all the original gas welded joint lines.

    Being steel it was interesting to note they welded a strip of metal around where the grill goes …. And only tipped the return about 10 mm …. Then gas welded on a 1 inch strip of metal……???….Normal for the day???.

    In Peters Excellent YouTube video he shows you how to fabricate the front edge return in aluminium……
    I can only imagine the Italians doing this ( weld on Strip of metal ) for speed.

    l will also Gas weld the joints for authenticity….😉😎
    Are all the lines you have marked out in the pictures the original weld lines???

      Normal for the day ?....... YES and NO....Depends on the worker on the day, I have also seen those fronts in pieces like you describe and in one piece turned over depending on the width of the flange . it really does not matter which way you go , providing that the grille fits well with a nice gap between the grill and the body and the welds are oxy and acetylene . In the last 40 Years I have made either full bodies for those Ferrari's or partial (depending on the conditions of them ) ,It's a LOT OF FUN making those beautiful shapes (that in my opinion are the best shapes ever ) SORRY GUYS BUT THAT IS MY PERSONAL OPINION PS.... can you tell that I am Italian . Having say that ..it's very true that ORIGINALLY those bodies where not that symmetrical and in some cases they were a little rough , some panels where file finished before painting . SO... if you can wheel a perfect panel , make a nice weld and put the whole lot together symmetrically you will be doing a nice job and the painters and owners will be very happy .

      PS if was possible I would gladly come and give you a hand on the build . I will be posting some picture soon on the ''EAGLE ''Jag that I am building at the moment .

        From what I can see and Find yes most are original cut lines …..😉. Some made shorter because I don’t need to put in a great big panel….( Top of wing near headlights …. Have heard it’s called the catwalk panel….????.

          Like Peter says you cannot guarantee even the badge in the centre … but this is 16 mm out… further measurements indicate that the whole front end is out ….. pulling shape out of the nearside wing
          and possibly making more shape on the offside wing.
          Anybody remember Sherlock Holmes….👍
