    Panel beating must be alive and well in Australia.One of my Australian cousins and one of his sons had quite a large collection of old cars.The son did a lot of the metalwork.He showed me a picture of a 35 Ford that when they bought it did not have any front end.They built the complete front end from scratch.I suppose they had access to another one for patterns.

    I watched an old body man,Joe Peroski in 62 work some lead on a 60 Chev.I was amazed how fast he was.I think he was faster than most of the Bondo bandits were at the dealership I worked at later.

    He would be. And not-only.

    Anybody as learnt the trade on lead-alloy is generally also waaay faster than the average when using plastics, too. Wastes far less time turning the most of it into dust, layer after layer.

    Seen that conversion // overlap aplenty, right about the same period of time, early 1960's.

    A HS classmate second-generation at it, his then-active Dad having learnt the craft back in Czechoslovakia.

    Since he'd been dead for 15 years before his namesake car ever plopped down in a showroom floor, it was probably a tough, honest mistake.....

    Bump files have a bend in them.
    We used them at Michelin Tech School in Greenville SC.
    I think they were Pferd brand files.
    We used them to make a cube flat and equidistant from all sides within .02mm.
    They are bent at about 1/3 the length, just like 1 or 2 degrees.
    The idea is so you can use the bump area to file off the high spots of your work surface
    without influencing the surface around the high spot. We actually used a spot of blue
    Dykem spotting dye to mark the bump on the file because it is so subtle.
    Kind of like scraping, but using a file to achieve the same thing.
