Re: In Lieu of the Hood Brace Pads?

On the braces that run front to back, I just set a 2x4 against the brace, and smack with a big hammer. Do as needed, until the bracing pads hold the skin up. The back brace has a much wider gap. Menards has different sizes of weatherstrip. I put it all the way across the back. It really helps stiffen up the skin.
Hope this helps.
