More than few years of experience, aquired upon structural parts inovation project of Mercedes 5000SL, in coorporation with DaimlerChrysler company, in which interest this project is being realized, enabeld the authors, of this paper, detailed introductin whith one of the methods which full contribution and development is being expectied in the near future. The authors are not yet in the position to public anounce cognitions that has been made within mentioned project, because of the secrecy agreement, but thay highly bealieve that presentation of hydroforming possibilities is of the huge significance.
