Aluminum Work

Recommended Posts

Just finished the aluminum on this Tatum Spyder after raising the sides about 6". did everything but the hood and original side panels. My talents are nothing like the big names in aluminum fab, but I think it came out pretty cool. What do you think?!

Looks great nice work. The secret of "big alumn guys" is planning and taking your time. Alumn is one of the easier metals to work with (much easier to weld and form than steel amd stainless can be tougher to bend though). Check out some of lazze metal formings videos on youtube. Good stuff. your panels look great

That aluminum work looks great. The 3D body line looks clean.

Thank you everyone! Looking forward to more projects this season.

If you have a project in mind don't hesitate to call. It's still pre-season so work isn't terribly backed up right now.
