Still a good job, and well worth the effort.

Panel epoxy. There is a glue they have for patches so they can be overlapped and then riveted for the repair. I believe it would be the right thing so you don't have to cut out the braze and all that, saw an article on it a while back. I think Eastwood carries it as a matter of fact.

well that may be an option.  My other concern is rust between the panel and the patch.  Obviously they didn't coat either side.  and with the vibration they've been rubbing so if there was any paint/coating it's probably rubbed off.  And the overlap makes it impossible to get a dollie against the skin to bring the dents out that surround the thing. 
I don't know what I'll do yet.  I'm in the humph stage right now.

Thought about it long enough.  It's coming out.  I can't leave it in there.  It'll bug me forever.  That being said I've also come to the realization that if that patch comes out the roof will also have to be tackled.  
I've set the priority for it and it won't begin til I get the rest of the drivers side done and the rest of the exhaust purchased, and fab'ed up.

Have you knocked out a freeze plug yet?  That will cause it to run hot.  Need to do both sides.  Sloppy job, but you'll be glad you did.

Well, we have flow, I know that much.  It doesn't act hot, doesn't smell hot, gives no other indication that it is hot other than the gauge.  In fact it runs really really well once the gauge pegs the ceiling.  It drives nice, doesn't act up, granted that's only been for about a mile or so just to see what the gauges do..  I know for a fact the other gauges in the dash are off too, just can't seem to find all the grounds to double check.

Well, there are only a few things that will make her overheat but not during idle, which doesn't have to cool much during idle. One is running lean on the carb side, the thermostat itself has frozen shut or not opening properly, plugged core or sludge in the block, water pump actually shot and the vanes have rusted away and not moving the water, air blocked from passing through the radiator, sucking air through a loose fitting, the internal of one of the two main hoses top and bottom has separated and pumping fluid at higher rpm is blocking the flow, or the radiator cap itself not holding pressure, . Flushing the block is usually the hardest part but a good thing to do after several years of no change of the fluid and usually a good start.

I know it's lean, it was tuned to a mile high (Denver)...  Where am I going to find jets and three step rods these days?
