So Rick, did you hollow out a female die to pound your "Speed Blisters" into?Brian

I used plywood forms. You cut the desired shape out of the center of two pieces of 3/4 plywood and sandwich the aluminum between them. Then hammer away until you get the shape you want. Take it out and touch it up with a hammer and dolly. I learned it by watching a youtube video.

That's clever. It's like the simple forms used for plastic windscreen bubbles, only with a hammer instead of heat and airgun. Looking great.

Very nice work. I do like the speed blisters and how you made them.

Thanks, Mark. I thought about using the same technique for a couple of scoops on the rear bodywork for brake cooling and intake air.
