I need to know what was used to seal the forward and rear cross member supports on the hood. It looks like some kind of caulk, sealant?????

Thanks, DAN

I must ask this: why do you need to know? I would guess you want to take this apart? I would say don't. but Eastwood will have some kind of panel adhesive to replace it with. I understand they used that to avoid the distortion in the hood that would be caused by spot welds.

Please find/make a hood brace to hold that hood open. the thought of the crease you are getting in the hood and the strain on the hinges is making chills run up and down my spine.

Thanks IO, that is from an image I found on line. NO, I don't put the hood up like that, old enough now to respect things that can "ring my bell!" I'm not taking it apart, all the material there is broke loose and I want to replace it.

Most auto body supplier have body panel adhesive. Mine came loose and rattled. Glued it up and solid now.

sooo, propping my hood open with my windshield frame is a bad idea?

I believe IO was refering to the picture of the hood open and laying against the tub with no winsheild frame mounted.

I have put mine up against the windshield since I bought it in 2000. Got a nice mark running across the hood from where it contacts windshield. Not a creese but more of a extreme scratch. Currently rebuilding my Jeep, gonna work in a hood prop.

every thing is all fun and games until a tail wind drops the hood on your body parts. As I get older and less bullet proof I think about these things differently.That is my biggest concern. yea I have a crease too, you know just every now and then you don't want to jack with the rod.

mostly it was the shot of the hood bent over the cowl like that that made me cringe.
