    What is you're brake rated for, it doesn't look to be any more than 16 gage mild steel.

    I use to have a chart that told what thickness of different alloys you can bend with a brake based on its mild steel rating but I can't find it anywhere. It was just approximation anyway but still interesting. I think 16 gage mild steel rated will handle 20 gage stainless and probably 14 or 12 gage soft aluminum. I wish I could find the chart.

    pro70z28,

    Nice work and a great CAR. I like the dash and bending idea.

    Thanks for sharing it.
