*Hood Warp*

My hood on my 49 on the drivers side is fine but the passengers side has a small warp. Seems pretty flimsy at the warp. What are my options to get it like the drivers side?

LOL

Might be able to gently bend the rear edge of the hood to flatten that passenger side out a bit. No hammering with that nice paint job.

Haha....not really looking for a project, it's just that the wife says something about it every now and then. I guess the first option is to put tape over her mouth but I think I'm looking for option 2.

"Hey! I sound like Darth Vader!!
Do you have the insulation pad that goes between the brace and the sheet metal? You can actually do some strategic placement and move that sheet metal around.

Also, not sure what that side of the hood looks like at the fender, but it's possible the side needs to sit a bit lower. That way the upper edge rests against the windlace a little more, which can flatten it out.

Thanks for the info. I'll take a look this morning on the underside of the hood.

When you say "pretty flimsy at the warp" do you mean the high spot will oil can/pop back and forth if you push downward?

Yup. That's what's happening. Once it warms up a little this morning I'm headed out to the garage to take a better look.

Take a picture of the inside of the hood so we can see if there was any damage there previously..
