I added a bottom plate and a 1/4" stiffener on the back.
Silicon bronze filler on the good side to get a nice radius after welding the backs with steel.

I welded in the piece. A lot of gaps made for some lumpy welding. Better than lumpy gravy or mashed potatoes I guess...........

Cool, it does look nice.
silicone bronze as filler....is that like a new type of brazing rod ? does it really have silicone in it and will paint stick to it ? anytime someone mentions silicone on a car, I cringe...

No worries. Silicon, like Silicon Valley, no "e".
Paint will stick to it fine.


Ya, silicone is one thing that should only be in RTV form and sealing an engine. Scary stuff to try to paint. Impossible actually.

Went out and got the first chunk O cowl tacked up. I'll wait til tomorrow so I can take my time getting the shape almost dead on before welding.


Stuck the hinge mock up in place with magnets for a look see.

Here's a small update.
Got the patch welded and cleaned up a bit.

Pugsy. I am not finding fault and maybe I have missed something earlier.

Why does the "pocket" curl back in at the back? the workmanship looks fantastic. I am just not quite understanding the design.

Ha, I think you're seeing an optical illusion. At the back top, it looks to be "turning" towards the driver side, is that what you see? If it is, that whole side is flat except the front where it blends in.

Bingo. That is exactly what it is. Thanks.

BTW, When we put the hood on the '53 today, I noticed how the hinges bring the hood forward and up, away from the cowl. It might be a design you want to look at.

Thanks.
I will be looking at all designs that fit the pocket area I've created.
If you had any close up pics, they would be appreciated.
