Use The English Wheel For Complex Panel Curves

As I get deeper into the sheet metal build on our Buell, constantly I am scanning youtube for builders that are sharing their vast wealth of knowledge of fabrication. Been putting quite a few hours into our 18 gauge sheet metal on the gas tank and really starting to get a feel for how to shape the metal just right. Will be posting more photos on the progress shortly. The videos below are a great insight into how to approach the metal in a practical way along with a technical aspect only years of knowledge could allow for.
