Pictures of underside of hood

What's up everybody. I'm working on the restoration of my hood. They aren't easy to come by in NJ and I bought the truck to get good at metalwork so I'm up for the challenge . I'm looking to save most of the original parts instead of replace. My hood was in pretty bad shape when I got it so I'm looking for pictures of the underside of some hoods. Any good pictures showing the support bracing and any closeups of the lip around the hood. Most of my hood is good. I rebuilt the back bracing where the hinges attach, now I need to rebuild the lip around the whole hood now. When I took the back bracing out there was a felt material In between the bracing and the outer skin of the hood. Is there any place you can get that now? Something that can be used in it's place? My truck is a 66 F-250 4x4 but I believe the hood is the same for every 61-66 truck. I may be wrong. Thanks

My truck is a 66 F-250 4x4 but I believe the hood is the same for every 61-66 truck.
C1TZ-16612-Z .. Hood Panel // Same: 1961/63 F100/750; 1961/66 B500/700 (school bus); 1964/66 F100/700.

I could post a pic from the parts catalog, but it doesn't show the underside of the hood.

My hood was replaced before I got the truck. It obviously came from a red truck. I was told a tree fell on the original.

Here are some pics of the underside. I'm not sure what you're looking for.

Some pics of the underside of my hood. Not in great shape but maybe will give you what you're looking for.

That's exactly what I was looking for. Thank you. Mine has had some really bad repairs so I'm not sure what is real and what is cobbled together. I just straightened out the back bracing where the hinges mount. Then cut the rot off of the one side and made up some panels and welded them in. Got them pretty close. I'm ready to set that brace back in and then cut the rotted lip off all the way around the hood a section at a time and make a new one. When I get to the front Lip I need to pull that bracing out, clean it up and put it back in. I figure if I mess it up all I wasted was some time and sheet metal. Then I will go buy a better one for $1000. Because that's about what you are paying once you get one shipped to NJ.

Your back Bracing where the hinges attach is only spot welded along the back edge where the hood meets the cowl right? Not along the front edge of the brace? It looks like there is a gap with felt material filling the gap. Am I correct? Mine was welded along the front but the welds were really bad. I'm pretty sure they weren't original but want to make sure.

Here's one side of my rebuilt lip. It's actually a double lip so the inside needs to be rebuilt, then the outside. It wasn't easy but came out pretty good. I later found a donor cab with solid hood so I am going to use the solid one when it goes back on.

Part mostly welded up. Still gets another panel over this one. Had to rebuild part of that too.
Still have some more work to do in this picture. You won't see most of this when done.






.





What my hood bracing looked like when I started. It's amazing what Bondo can hide.

I'll be doing the same repair around the lip of my hood. I can't make it any worse than it already was.

Here's a photo of the front hood reinforcement removed. 30 minutes to remove with a good set of spot weld cutters. Removing this was an after-thought so the hood and brace had to go back to the sandblaster.

Awesome! This is exactly the info I was looking for. I was wondering how hard the front brace was going to be to get apart. Now I know and now I feel better about actually being able to save this hood. . Did any of you find the Felt stuff they used between the bracing and the hood skin? I only pulled 1 small piece out of mine. The rest was gone.
