One day workshop focused on the use of Splines

Metal Finishing with Peter from Mobile Car Restoration.

In this one day class we cover traditional skills and techniques that are the cornerstone of metal finishing, also called file finishing.

Metal finishing is a time-honored craft that involves shaping and smoothing metal to remove imperfections and restore the metal to its original form. This class aims to provide you with a solid foundation in these methods, ensuring you have the skills to tackle your own restoration projects.

We start by evaluating the condition of the panel, identifying dents, warps, and stretched areas, then plan for the work ahead.

For areas where the metal has been stretched, heat shrinking is essential. We show you how to use a torch and shrinking disc to carefully heat the metal, causing it to contract and regain its original form and we provide tips to avoid common pitfalls.

Once the major imperfections are addressed, we use slappers and dolly’s to further tune the surface. Using hammers and dollies to gently coax and smooth the metal back into shape. This step helps distribute the metal evenly and prepares it for the final finishing touches.

Patience is Key: Metal finishing is an art that requires time and precision. Rushing the process can lead to mistakes and subpar results.
