I know if have seen expansion foam in the hood. I had a buddy do his with all metal and it just way to heavy.

what are you trying to do on the hood and truck see the problem is they are high traffic areas that will be slammed and shake. your metal work doesn't have to be perfect. there are lighter gauges you can play with if weight is an issue


or rivets and all metal brand filler

It can be done with metal without getting too heavy.

the hood hinges are strong enough to support a few more pounds anyway, I built an all steel cowl hood and molded the inside of the hood, added a lot of steel to it but it stays up easily.

most cars have these torsion bars to keep the trunk open, and usually they can be adjusted a little firmer so you wont have problems with a heavier trunk lid.



my homie molded his hood and trunk of his '78 having no problems being too heavy or anything

im still waiting on pics, i wanna know how you paint over the glue?
Its called Panel Bonding Adhesive. If you use it to glue your sheet metal down, your then gonna have to fiberglass or use reinforce body filler to cover the seam. All in all, I think welding a sheet to your underside will yield better results and be less work on the bodyman. If not your going to be blocking that underside 20 times :yessad:

Panel bonding adhesive is for skinning doors,not shaving body panels.
