50 Ford Hood

This damage on this hood don't look too bad but there is some support behind the damage that are going to make it a challenge to fix. I am not a body man--what do you experts
think?

I think I'd be crying!
You may have to cut out the bracing on the hood and weld back in. The rest looks like you'l need some parts and a good chrome shop. What a bummer, that's a really nice car.

Go over to metal meet. com and study on the metal working..all of that can be repaired by a good metal worker..just takes time to do so..

Sorry..gotta watch out for mad trees..

You might be able to bring the hood out slowly with a panel stretcher. As you pull, straighten the reinforcement. Might require a hot wrench.

EASTWOOD also sells a tool that will allow you to peel a skin off instead of grinding it off. You can work the reinf. and then the skin and reassemble.

The face bar should be saveable if you find a good rechroming shop with that particular bumper... ?

What's the word? You put it against a mold and heat and beat until it is back in shape.

...sheesh...
