Cool Body Buck...

How are you going to attach the body panels together?? IF I remember correctly, weren't they heat fused with an acetylene/oxygen torch and some filler rod then ground down and sanded?

Good luck with your project.

Paul, I am jealous. Looking very cool. How do you do the seam work where the panels connect?

The Cobra's of the 60's and virtually any aluminum car of that era or earlier were gas welded using aluminum filler rod.
