Basically just 6 hours of beating it with round nylon hammers on top of sandbag.

Second picture is testing the T-Ford "Neva-Lost" radiator cap on it. Looks like I'll have to learn how to do brazing, since i need to join steel and brass..

Once I am not in the garage all night, I'll try to start a write up in Board tracker forum soon....
