Nose Ridge Replacement - 5 Posted: Fri Jun 08, 2018 1:45 am     Views: 27      Rating: Not rated

After welding in the nose ridge, grind the welds flush on the inside of the nose and stretch them out with hammer/dolly. I sprayed the nose with machinists blue and started smoothing with vertical/horizontal templates/hammer/spoons/dolly/mallet/shrinking disc.

I started by stretching the welds and then consolidating small smooth areas into larger ones and then again into even larger areas... Looks like a mogul field. lol 1957 lowlight Ghia
