Sidecar Repair Continued

Got a little more work done on the sidecar the past few days.

Both panels look good and fit nice so its time to tip the edge to match the seam the runs underneath the sidecar body.

I ended up making my own tipping tool out of some sqaure tube and angle iron.

Both halves tipped nicely but once I got to the "nose" of each panel I had to stretch the edge at the same time to keep the piece from buckling.

Both edges are tipped and smoothed out great. I think next I am actually going to spotweld the two halves together just like the factory and then drop the two panels in as a whole and weld everything up.
