Thank you Jon.

I would like some advice please from the forum. I'm not sure what to do between the bonnet support flanges and the skin. The rear one will be held down by the three hinge bolts each side and spot welded at the ends on the bonnet lower flange. Front will be plug welded along the front and ends as well as the ornament screw holding it fast.
Now before welding them in place, all will be painted, but should I also be putting sealant all of the way along flanges where it touches the skin, or just leave it out? The dimpled holes wont keep the moisture out anyway, and even if they weren't there, you need any condensation to get out. I could also use panel adhesive but worried it might be too strong and prevent metal expansion and contraction over such a wide area. I don't want to see where it pulls against the supports on a cold day for instance.
What is best to do in this situation?

Marcus id consider panel adhesive on those flanges , as well it serves 2 purpose bonding (these days often better that welding) and a sealant to reduce perpetration of moisture and dirt .

Cheers David

So as it still allows some movement it should be alright. Might just be over thinking it.

if you are worried about using panel adhesive, use a body seam sealant between the flanges

personally I wouldn't use panel adhesive on flat panels, only good for flanged, stepped or seams where you go over with filler. Panel adhesive doesn't shrink and expand with temp so panel distortion will be noticeable.
A little bit like if you apply urethane on panel stiffeners, EG Large panels as in Vans, Kombis and Buses. The panel distorts when the urethane dries.
Marcus, great job your doing on the Jeep, bonnet looks awesome and looks absolutely factory, the perfect scenario for late model to early conversion.

I would stay away from panel adhesive , It is strong even though flexible,It would cause distortion in the panel during heat/ cool cycles. I would use nothing or a light seam caulk.

Many thanks guys. That is exactly what I was worried that could happen using adhesive, so will stick with a sealer only.

Hi Marcus .the stuff they use on late model cars between intrusion bars and door skins also between bonnets and the inner skin is called anti flutter. Ive used it before and it works really well .It stops the the sucking of the panels when it gets too hot or too cold .Its just an idea you might be interested in.
Cheers Paul
