Longtime New Zealand lurker here, I have been following for a few years and I must say I am incredibly impressed with what you guys are doing with some very bent scrap. I never would have thought it possible to use just about all of those mangled bits scoured off the lake bottom. Talk about a paradigm shift
I don't think I will ever look at bent metal in the same way again.
I can still remember seeing a video documentary of the bluebird crash as a young child 20 odd years ago. I think the finality of hitting the lake at high speed being unsurvivable cemented it into my mind. To think that soon the boat will again be alive and kicking is heartening.
Half a world away I have a small metal project on the go but it starts with new tin and on CNC equipment. Although the polar opposite of the bluebird rebuild there is some metal forming inspiration I have picked up from here.http://www.homebuiltairplanes.com/forum ... 15-nz.html
Keep up the good work and git er done.
