During our visit at Empire Fabrication a couple issues back, we noticed the intricate rear suspension display that was currently in the works on a VW Caravelle van. Lots of intricate metal work was being done to cover the ’bags and mounts in the form of metal “blisters” or humps, so we stuck around for a quick metal shaping lesson.

With the use of assorted tools from Eastwood, Sean Ramage walked us through the process of forming, shrinking, pounding, and hammering metal in the name of custom fabrication, and shared a couple tricks along the way. Read up and take a few notes.
