Nose Ridge Replacement - 6 Posted: Fri Jun 08, 2018 2:41 pm     Views: 31      Rating: Not rated

Using a template to check progress. Up high by the emblem is getting pretty close. Flip the template over and you can use it on the other side.

I made a handful of templates using thick matting board for different contours all over the car. Even though the body isn't covered with dents and gouges, it's had 60 years of road use, a nice crash, hippies sitting on fenders etc. Templates help to find irregularities that flexible longboards won't catch, especially the top/outer curves of the front fenders.

Spend some time studying the vintage ghia and period colour threads and see how very straight these bodies were, when new. 1957 lowlight Ghia
