The dumb a$# previous owner (flipper) brazed a new nose on this car. I am finding it easier to cut and weld in patches than trying to melt out the brazing material than trying to fix all the botched metalwork along the seam and either side of the seam. This way I control how much to replace in each section. If you zoom in on the last pic you can see what some of the seam looks like.
Keep going, you can't stop now and from the 6 million dollar man "we can rebuild him"
