1956 hood repair

Postby regwal » Wed Aug 24, 2016 11:53 pm

I had to make a decision on discarding or fixing. I decided to fix with a lot of grinding, welding, body filler and JP Weld. I'm satisfied.

Looks great and you'll be happier with fixing it yourself every time you get on it!

Thanks guys, the picture does the hood justice though. It had very bad pitting and holes where I thought it was beyond my expertise to fix. After pricing a new one my mind was made up quickly however. I didn't try to make it show quality, just nice. Now for the remainder of this Ol Cub.
