Ya hoo,
I'm scratch building a 750. Started with firewall and working my way back. Got the cabin floor mostly done and working way up sides now.
Your going to need a good break. A 4 foot and a 9 foot. Suppose a good 9 foot would cover.
I can tell you now hat bends in 040 longer then 12 inches kick my ass. The break I made just wont hat bend 20 mm sides. The last bend I made the seat base, I just made two Ls and rivetted them together.
I did buy a 40 inch cheapy press break-shear. Shear cuts 040 40 inches, only likes 12 inches of 060 and doesn't want to break much more then 25 inches of 032. But I use this all the time for smaller parts.
Having a great time so far. Hope you do too. Good luck. James

Have fun.  Don't pull the trigger too fast when problem solving, stand back look at things and the answer will come to you.  I call scratch building  scrap building.  Your scrap pile will grow fast.  Good luck.  Anything I can help with just ask.
