Well I thought today's progress was scuppered when I looked out the window !!! But luckily the sun came out at 10am and melted it all Anyway today was mostly fibreglassing, first thing was to get the hood sorted, the sides flatten slightly when moulded and they should have a barrel shape to them, just the way it is with glass, but its easily sorted Heres a couple of pics where the shape can be seen or not seen depending on which one your looking at the first is my coupe The solution is to bond in 2 thin strips of ply to bring the barrel shape back. First I used a piece of aluminum fuel pipe to copy the curve, then I traced it onto some ply. Then I cut 2 thin strips out, a third much thicker strip was cut to form the curve for clamping. Next it was clamped in place and the bonding area marked for keying (its tricky on white to see where you have been) The thin strip is held in place with a few blobs of body filler Here the strips are bonded in but still green Here you can see the shape in the correct profile While the strips were kicking off I decided to glass in a hood lock panel, a piece of offcut glass was cut to shape and held in place with a blob of body filler. Here's the hood back on the car. .
