Well my friends, I am pleased to report that the new hinge works and the hood clears, so let the party begin...
I am totally over the moon with this result.
So high 5's all round I guess.

There is still a lot of fiddly work ahead, but it kinder means more now, that I know it will work and anything I do now will be worth the effort.

I guess the hinge pic and its mounting is self explanatory for you.
It is odd but it works and not as pretty as my first choice.
Pretty is a bit like BS, it only gets you so far...

Dear friends and fellow Forum members interested in my project pursuits, I am sorry for the delays in posting progress, but progress has been slow.
I do have some more material to post soon, I am held up again by my laser cutting guy as you may recall this happened previously.
Any way stay posted as I will have fresh up to date pic's very soon.

In the meantime, as you may be aware I have a number of YouTube videos listed and some of which have been well accepted.
I do not derive any payment or income from these, but do like to see them front and center so that they are easily accessed by interested folks.

If you care to see what I am talking about you can just GOOGLE the following. Cadflat Video Series

Once there, you can click on any of the 5 videos I have up loaded and I would ask that you kindly hit the SUBCRIBE button on one or all of them.

By subscribing it helps keep these videos front and center which from my point of view would be very helpful to the cause.

If you do feel inclined to support this request, then I thank you very much indeed.

Your support is what provides me with the motivation to keep finding topics of interest to post...

Well, I now have my new stainless steel laser cut hinge components and I have assembled them.
I still have some finish welding to do but for the sake of showing them here is what we have.

One pic is of the prototype and the other of the stainless hinge.

I am now in the process of trying to get the inner and outer skins to match up ready for attaching them to form one unit.

That hinge looks pretty good. It is nice and simple and non cluttered...


By the way Mate did ya ever replace the hinges on the table that provided your insight to this success?


Looks good keep plugging away.

Thanks RIP, my hinge is not a perfect solution, but the best I can come up with to handle the criteria of the problem.
It is easily removable should I choose to run without a hood.

I never heard the end of it from the cook regarding the borrowed hinges from our TV chair console.
So rather than fighting it, I reinstalled them and all is peaceful again...

Much work still to be done in small steps so no errors are made.

The bonus I take away from using these TV chair hinges is that now my hood opens up to 90 degrees and the tail end rests on the radiator support rods.
This is extraordinary when compared with my first hinge design where I was struggling to get a 35 degree opening and at one point it was even smaller and hardly worth the effort.

I think that I have become a little lazy during this current lock down and my old age.

I have spent quite a bit of time fooling around with the sheet metal portion of my hood project with little to show for it.

I have removed all the surface rust from both sides of the inner and spent much time test fitting the inner and outer skins to a point where I am happy with the fit. I have tried to ensure that one skin is not stressing the other and the fix is more a naturally compatible.

I have gone over the inner and tried to remove or should I say reduce the number of highs and lows in the sheet metal.

Since the outer face of the inner sheet is not seen, I have basically ensure it is flat or with only lows that I can fill with body filler.
Body filler is a necessary evil IMHO and I always aim to use the minimal amount.

While the outer surface of the inner skin has been primed and painted roughly with some old spray can paint I have no further use for and decided to use it up as a rust preventative.

The inner face of the inner skin is coming along nicely, considering my skill level and next week I hope to be ready to purchase some spray on primer high fill that will hopefully remove most of the minor scores and marks in preparation for further work later.

Next steps will be to cut the air cleaner opening in the outer skin and press the lip into it and the do some more body filler work in readiness for the mating of the two skins to make the hood.
