  • Buttercup gets a filler panel

    Fabricobbled a filler panel today.
    Got all the welds done. Ran out of time.
    Tomorrow I'll grind the welds and get some paint on it.
    A grinder and paint,
    Make me the welder I ain't.

    Multiple angles because of the tight clearances on the hood hinge cross bar.

    All the joints were welded on the backside first. Then I stitch welded all the joints on the top side. Should be able to grind it and not have any pits show up. If they do, I still have plenty of wire.

    And you said you weren't a fabricator!
    Nice work.

      I'll admit to being a fabricobbler. That's as far as I'll go.

            Thanks Bill.
            Remember to save those hood hinge parts for me if you aren't going to use them.
            I have two more Studes to do.

              Thanks Topper. Looks like you're making a bit of progress on yours as well. Your welds are looking a lot better. When you can, weld the back side first. It makes welding the top side a lot easier.

                Today I ground the welds and put on a couple coats of black satin. Looks good enough for a driver. Click image for larger version

                  All I can say is: Totaly lovely.
                  I have to do something very similar & my welds never even looks as good as yours but I don't mind as long as I can put paint on ti & say "it's an old car & it's been repaired"...

                    That's no excuse.

                    Blacked out the bottom of the radiator so all that aluminum won't show when he's finished. Click image for larger version
