well jumped into it today and decided to bend the D21 replica hood. Pretty happy with it still need to trim it along bottom edges. I used 16 gauge aluminum. Its 42 inches long but I will cut 8 inch off and they will become part of my steering tower.

Looking good!  I can't wait to see this one done.  A D21 is an awesome classic muscle tractor.  Will be cool as a small scale puller.

Started on my grill today. I am using 6160 aluminum solid stock. Lots of sanding and buffing but its ready to weld. I will weld it so it wont be visible from the front...

Finished up with the D21 grill today pretty happy with it. I will do a final buff on it once the tractor is done. Next up is the cone on the front end of the hood

You do some very nice work!  I wish I had the patience to do such beautiful work, but when it comes to welding....I just get it done and it doesn't look so nice.

If you're making that look like a 1/4 scale D 21, that thing will look awesome!  Keep up the nice work and keep the pictures coming!   :good_job:

so was able to complete the front end of my hood.I found it a little to high so notched the front of frame to drop it down. The frame will be capped in polished aluminum. I fear the other end of the hood will be more of a challenge though.
