Ď63 hood hinge support bracket rusted out
 
As indicated in the title, the bracket that spans across the hood where the hinges attach is badly rusted and separating from the hood. Other than this, the hood is in great, patinad shape. I canít find anreplacement bracket, only hinges or an entirely new hood. Iíd rather not replace the hood, seems like a waste since itís otherwise in great shape. Has anyone out there had this problem and fixed it? Thanks.

Not sure what you have going on there as I don't have a 63 but I would think you could cut out the bad area and weld in a new section. Dave may have a better idea anim_25

I concur with Charlie, find a junk hood, but has a decent mount area and cut and weld...
