I have to thank my grandfather and my father.
I saved my grandfathers' Model T jack, and my fathers' big house jack.
Not having a hydraulic porta-power, I kinda sorta made one up.
Clamped the Model T jack up against the front crossmember and clamped it to the nose with a big c-clamp.
http://inlinethumb56.webshots.com/42743/2805782050038087468S425x425Q85.jpg
Screwed the jack out to push the nose out.
Then, to push the nose back 'up', I used the house jack.
http://inlinethumb26.webshots.com/44377/2324726670038087468S425x425Q85.jpg
Looks stupid, but it worked a smooth as a hydraulic setup would have.
Massaged it a bit and then put the fins back in for a trial fit.

You are right....
I have thought about taking it all apart and fixing that ding quite a few times.
Then sanity comes back.
Hit the center bar with some 1000 grit sandpaper lubed with liquid rubbing compond.
Then buffed it with the black sticks.
Cleaned it off and buffed it again with the white sticks.
Except for the bad scratches and the big ding, it cleaned up pretty good.
Here's a pic in between the sanding and the black stick polish.

Jimmy Clarke up in North Carolina showed me a neat thing he did on his CE.
He took a '39 Ford center stainless trim piece and it was a tad larger and slid right over the Stude piece.
So far I have resisted the temptation.
Dug the bad Bondo out this morning, masked and sanded the offended area, and am getting ready to putty it up...

Did you not add hardener to the paint? I've had this issue with rattle can paint. I let it cure for 3 days and applied another coat (of a different shade of paint) and the paint crinkled because the paint wasnt fully cured. If it had hardener in, it may have not done this.
