I am removing the hood ornament and trunk handle from my 37 Ford. What is the best way to fill the holes in todays world?
Back in the 50"s I used lead, and a long time ago I used fiberglass.
How should I do it now

Thanks

Ted

Mash or beat a piece of 3/4 copper tubeing flat......hold that on the back side of the hole then mig weld your hole....the copper serves as a backer and it will not stick to the weld. Then grind your weld down and smooth up with a little body filler or spot putty.

Oh, man. That's a side affect I never thought about. My condolences. Seriously. But, I guess it's a 'risk vs reward' kinda thing, eh?

Good thing for all of us to keep in mind, especially if we have a lot of older (read: established enough to be able to afford our work) customers thru the shop...
