Will you leave it a bare aluminium panel? (I would)

Added a notch to the fiberglass for the door light wires to pass thru. Then sanded the panel with 220 grit and finally 400 grit.mthen countersunk the rivet holes. Time for other door

Original cars had a bracket welded to the body to which the hood prop rod was attached.



Since I can’t weld aluminum to the fiberglass, my only option is to mount it to the firewall with rivets

Spent the last few days trying to find a picture of a 289 engine bay that shows the prop rod retaining clip. Today I found it.


And then searched for “metal prop rod retaining clip”. To my surprise, I found one. Made for early Jaguars. Ordered it tonight



Life is good
