Hi Bernhard, please read pm.
By the way, the gap between grill and body at the driver´s side is about to be closed. The panels had been made exactly as they originally were, leading to a 4-5 mm gap, which had been closed by lead or tin or however you call it at Pininfarina. I am doing the same thing. Again it is a technique you have to learn. Started with some lead/tin rods we had in the company. That turned out to be of a wrong mixture, meaning when it got liquid it flowed like water. I remembered having some other rods left over from a restoration twenty five years ago (That was my first restoration, a dark blue Flavia Convertibile, virtually put 500kg of tin in it)
With that stuff it was easier, because the alloy has a "pasty like" phase at a certain temperature. You have to use wooden spattles(?) to form that, nice job keeping the tin pasty and squeezing it in shape without having your spattle catching fire all the time. Even more, you have to wax the spattle frequently, otherwise the tin will stick to it.
Most hated moment? When you give to much heat and a previously nice patch goes down on the floor like a curtain.
