I'm always anxious to see your next process. As others have said, I'm amazed! @tygaboy Did you have to wrestle with Spell Check over your noun coinage? :shades2

I finished the upper latch pins, they bolt into the old hood hinge threaded holes. notice the cuts in the fender, I am dealing with those next.

Here is the lid latched for the first time, feels very secure and works like a charm!
Now to fix the fender gaps.
Attached Image

I bolted the fenders to the doors like this, it holds the fender to the right curvature while i weld the cuts in the back to set the shape.

Welder is in the other garage, drove it over and took the front wheels off.

With the fenders bolted in place I welded in a filler piece into the fender well, this will hold the proper shape of the fender and keep crap from flying into the door jamb.

Once the inside was tacked I could unbolt the fender gaps, tilt open the lid and weld the outside of the fender filler.

I like this shot, the state of affairs...

Since I had the car out of the garage I took it for a quick spin, I need to replace the timing belt before I gun it too hard, but it ran great, here are some images of it out of the shop:
