Used the 3M 4274 Duramix NVH sealer and reassembled the hood. Clamped it together for now and then after the 24 hour cure period I will attempt to spot weld it together.

Sometimes my welding attempts go really easy and sometimes I blow holes in everything.

Spot welded the hood back together today.

My MIG has a Stitch and Spot weld selector. I had a terrible time getting it set right. Get one perfect 3 second weld and the next would blow through. Finally flattened a piece of 3/4" copper pipe and clamped it behind the weld area as a heat sink. That helped a lot.

Ran a DA over the epoxy to find the low spots:

Here is my Disaster Area. Someone took a pick and performed what I call a "cave and pave" in the center of the hood. Used a hammer and dolly to flattened the tiny dents which caused a very large high spot. This will be a good place to learn how to use my new shrinking disc and slap hammer from Wray Schelin. :cool:
