Nice clean work that you are doing. I have the desire and not all the skills to do such a thing, but I do share the love for doing it..
I have a 76 Trike kit that some one did up and now I own it. I see they tried their best, but it would be so kick ass sharp if you had done the work.

I can not wait to follow this thread more to see all your artistic work come together at the end. Such quality looking work.

The process is both pressing and hammering.

I love the process. Very much how an artist works.
Sitting there on the table the scoops look like mid century danish platers. You should snack out of them while you work on the other bits.
Killer.
