I got the mess cut off and the new patch panel set in place.

Hopefully, I can start welding it tomorrow.

01-01-2012 03:05 PM FRONT END SCREW UPS
Following the original buck, all my panels came out the correct shape.
Only one problem with that. The buck was made wrong.

The first pic shows that the bottom of the hood would have a downwards curve, then go up and then down again.
This is unacceptable so some major surgery is called for.

I made another buck on top of the mess in order to make a flexible shaped pattern.

Third pic shows more waviness from a different angle.

I got the driver's side plate welded in.

Just needs some planishing and metal finishing.

11-03-2011 05:17 PM HEADLIGHT PLATES
I made a hammerform to bang out some new headlight panels.
I couldn't stand the sight of the ugly shape and welding.

First pic shows the mess looking from the inside.

The last two pics are of the new weld in panel and bezel.

10-23-2011 10:19 AM FIXING THE MESS

Upon closer inspection, I discovered I made the first grill collar wrong and then copied that for the passenger side.

I brought out the torch and big blankin' hammer and had at it.

Got it into shape pretty good.

The last pic is a side view showing the shape thru the grill openings.
