Radiator sides - shoulder pieces

Haven't spent long in the Bat-Cave today, but managed to get a couple of hours of metal bashing in. Am making radiator sides from scratch. Had planned on just modifying another set of sides from a different vehicle but found that they'd need so much adjustment it just wouldn't be worth the hassle. Anyway, the J type rad is rather special and the sides are far more elegant than on this other car.

I am pleased with the shoulders. Tomorrow I shall make the sides and bottom bits. Welding will have to wait until Sealeys replenish their gas stock. I hope to get the radiator plus sides to Sheldrake and Wells on Monday at the latest. They promised that I can take pictures of the process for the blog.
