    My father and I are preparing our 1964 Falcon convertible for paint.

    We stripped every panel down to bare metal.

    We have all the seams in the floors, doors, etc sealed...except for one area.

    The braces under the hood had a heavy sealer between them and the underside of the hood panel. During the stripping process...the filler came out.

    Can any of you recommend a filler material to use in this area?

    Without the filler the top surface of the hood has low spots where the braces are located. So the caulking/filler used will have to be of a heavier consistency so the hood panel will not hve the low spots.

    At a local interior shop. You might also try a body shop.

    3M makes all the auto body stuff in the world, maybe check their catalog and call to talk to a tech.
     
  8. You could try 3M 5200 adhesive/sealant from a marine store. Tough as nails, super adhesive and stays flexible. In the "marine industry", we don't use this on something we may have to remove someday!
