    As a former body guy I have to ask, are putting body filler direct to metal with no primer? Its hard to determine from the picture.

    Yup. I blast it with a spot blaster, then use Eastwoods metal wash then putty. If this were a "show" vehicle I would have put epoxy primer on first

    So I got 2 radiators with the truck , the bad one has a flatter top and is about 1/2" shorter to top of filler as the more rounded one I used is. I noticed the hood hit the cap and wouldn't close. I took the flat cap off the other radiator and replaced the latched one with it. So now hood closes with a about 1/8" to spare but the hood is hitting the fenders now.....touch up... grrr. I'm hoping after putting on the weather seals it will help.
