May I suggest two books, Sheet Metal Fabrication and Advanced Sheet Metal Fabrication. They can be found in the Transportation section of Barnes and Noble. In the books they make templates from a NON corrugated cardboard but you could do the same with posterboard. Once you get all the angles figured out you lay the paper version out on the aluminum, trace, cut and bend Then weld up the small places Lots of kewl projects in there from oil tanks to building a monocoque chassis for a GTP car. One book even shows a guy repairing a Ferrari 250 GTO - one of my favorite cars!!
