I'm looking for some direction. I have a windshield bracket from a '53 MG that fits the contour of the cowl. However after the bodywork was completed the bracket has a gap (1/8-3/16) along the curvature between the mounting points. My hope is to build up the edges of the bracket and grind a slightly new profile to match the cowl. The bracket is brass. I have a 180 mig w/ gas setup. What is the best process for this mod? I have read about silver solder, silicon brass wire, etc. which leads to my next question, can all these materials be chromed?
This is purely a cosmetic modification.
