Hood nose rust repair help

I've searched through and can't find any threads on this so I'm asking.
I have a '79 f150 and the hood has the rust line on the front nose of the hood in several places. I haven't been able to find a truly rust free hood in my searches through the jy, and I'm not willing to pay $300 for a new reproduction hood. I have more time then money so I'm willing to try and repair one first, if I can't repair it then I'll consider it.

I have welding experience, but not body working experience. I have two hoods, so I figured this wood be as good a place to start learning as any.

I have to retrieve my spare hood from storage, my dad's barn, before I can post any pics.

Has anyone removed the inner cage from a hood before? From the looks of all the hoods I've looked at that water holds in the area under the decals and rusts from the inside out so I'd like to remove it and treat the underside of the hood well.

Thanks

A guy in the 73-79 section did it to his hood. Pulled the frame out, fixed it and put it back together. I want to do the same as I cannot find a rust free bonnet here and the repro ones are wrong fit.

Any idea the post, or was it part of a build?

Wow that was a hard thread to find.

He does the roof replacement then the Hood repair later in the thread. I am definitely doing the same thing as I cant find a decent one in Australia.
