I have a 64 Falcon. The hood hinges are attached to the inner fender panel with three captive nuts on each side. I have one missing and the hole is enlarged. I need some guidance on the repair and given the cars age, should I address all six nuts.
I would make the hole larger, cut out another piece from same gage and weld it in to fill the hole. I then would determine the location of the new hole and drill slightly larger than the size bolt you are going to use. Then, I would weld a nut in the correct place to bolt the hinge onto. If the nut needs to be on the blind side, then weld it on before welding the filler in place.
