Planishing Hammer Work on 1938 Chevy Coup Headlamp Bucket

My friend Pete and I made this planishing hammer based on a previous design by a well known metal shaper.
This process allows me to get the precise shape based on the profile gauge and then finish it off in the English Wheel. I am using a 2″ lower die here in this portion of the headlamp bucket.
