Do you have a smart phone?
You may be able to do it without a smart phone, just on your computer but I'm not sure.

I may be mistaken but you can only look on a computer, you need a smart phone to post photos to Instagram. Or a special program installed on your computer.

Super amazing metal work, Danny. You're a sheet metal genius!

I would buy a How-to DVD if you made one.

Those Ghia Nose dies should have been sold with every Ghia at the Factory. That is a beautiful tool. I almost want to buy one just to have. And I dont have a Ghia. Keep up the good work!

Danny,

What years do your rear fender sections that you're working on fit? My understanding is that there are four different shapes: early to 59, 60-66, 67 - 71 and 71 - 74.

I have a 62, and have a fender section that's supposed to fit 60 - 66 "with heavy modification", which sounds like a thorough rework to the sheet metal.
