    Just wondering how you are going to spot the rusting under those nice dimpled corner braces? I would have thought some copper or zinc weld through primer on first before welding them in and then seam seal after priming.
    Hi Marcus, probably doesn't show in the pics but the inside of the bonnet sides and the small inner braces are sprayed with 3M Weld -thru primer .I try to keep over lap joints to a minimum , but where I have to they are sprayed with the same stuff.Cheers.

    Just few pics I forgot to post last time .I had to cut off the bottom of the grille shell for two reasons (1) 60+ years of touch parking and (2) and one of the few areas of tin worm .



    I made some reasonable progress over the weekend , I think it was worth the effort .
    I made up the new piece to extend the grille shell and fill the gap to the fender.


    Then cut out the old piece .

    The gap was about 25mm at the top and getting larger towards the bottom ,which meant that the mount behind this piece was no use anymore .So I had to make up an extension , this had a piece of plate welded to the back of this so that I could drill and tap this when the new panel goes in .


    New piece welded in .









    With this done I stripped down the front end and removed the rad which makes life alot easier to finish off some other panels that fit under the slam panel .
    Later I have to fill in these cut outs for bumper irons .






    I tried the wheel back on and recheck the clearances .The truck came with a pair of fender braces but they are for the original fenders and don't fit without alot of mods .Not sure yet if I will modify them or make some more .

    Thanks guys .
    Although I have made more and more work for myself with each mod I do ,( but that is the nature of our hobby !!!! ) I would have liked to have used those braces if possible as I would have put the work and time into some other areas .I have a couple of ideas of how I would like them to look but haven't worked out how to make them .....yet !!!!!
