Traced around the template last night onto a bit of 16swg sheet steel welded some mounting studs in place. plug welded them and sanded smooth. To keep to the rivet theme i filed out the mounting holes in the hood hooks. I decided rather than just have an edge on the filler piece I would add a return, tacked it up and then welded and smoothed off and a squirt of primer. Here its back in place, still needs a bit of sanding to even up the gaps but its looking much better. .
