Complex automotive body panels and pieces are shaped by hand, or with primitive tools. The pics of welding in open-toed sandals with no protection are very cool. With the assistance of a Pakistani doctor/businessman, these metalshapers are selling inexpensive hand-formed body parts to enthusiasts in Western automotive forums. Initially focusing on 4×4 body panels, they are now gearing up to form complete steel hot rod bodies at half the current market price. More info here and here. Very interesting, from both a cross-cultural and lowbuck-maker perspective.” – Link.
