Project Porsche 911 (Part 6) – Longhood Conversion Progress

I’ve moved on to modify the hood to extend down to the new fiberglass bumper.  So far so good now that the outer skin extension is in place and fitting pretty well.  In this episode I explain how I formed the compound shape needed to transform the front end look.  Although non-conventional, the CNC’s hammerform worked well for me to rough out the shape.  Then the english wheel was used to smooth out all the hammer marks.

Next week I will use the same hammerform to shape the inner skin and hopefully wrap up this hood.
