Making trim Pieces


An interesting and challenging project came to the Panel Shop. A company making Pre-War French Automobile inspired hot rods asked the Panel Shop to make a set of steel trim pieces for a pair of fiberglass fenders. Even though the complex shape they were making for this car could be made in Fiberglass, the trim pieces still needed to be in steel so they could be chromed.


There was some pretty complex metal forming to make these pieces, but Mark was up to the challenge.


Even though these fenders were made out of fiberglass they didn’t necessarily match side to side, so each trim piece had to made to match each fender. I can’t wait to see how they look when they get chromed!
