Hey, Chevy guys and gals. Have you ever wanted to learn how to use an English wheel or, for that fact, any of the metalworking skills it takes to make a hood, bomber seats, or fenders from scratch? Every year Ron Covell travels the country with his workshop series. These seminars are a great way to learn new metalworking skills or to brush-up on techniques you may be rusty on, such as TIG welding, hammerforming, or metalshaping. The workshops are hosted by some of the top street rod shops in the nation plus schools that have outstanding automotive metalworking programs, including return visits to Trick Tools in Iowa and the fabulous Museum of American Speed at the Speedway Motors campus in Nebraska.
