    Blocking tools for style lines

    Made from softwood. Retainer bars made from stainless steel.









    Accurate profiling was obtained by inverting abrasive sheet on good sections of bodywork & working the tools to shape.

    I like how you used abrasives and the bodywork itself to get accurate profiles. Good idea!
