Success! All parts filed smooth and fitted. Will build a holding fixture and take to a welder.
Time to weld

It will be sanded smooth and left raw

I remade the sides. I raised the front 1-1/2”. Now it more closely resembles the one I copied and better fits under the hood. There’s a small gap in one corner but I think it can be welded closed.

Looks good. thanks for the process photos. I would leave it raw.

And if you want to take it one more step, grab a softball sized handful of wheel bearing grease and literally throw it into each of the rear corners.

When these were raced, the grease helped to catch the sand, gravel, and track debris to keep it out of the carbs. But it really looks bad,. and a lot of people would not know the reason.

Fabricated and installed the hood hinge plates on the inner skin. All that’s left is fabricating the door hinge swing arms. Then off to paint
