did that because the car came from factory with yellow spots , so i thought i should keep it that way .
I am pretty sure the big-three manufacturers all used ERW
(electric resistance) spot welders for body assembly. The
only gas+flux soldering process I believe they still used
in the 1960s was the leading done at the roof/quarter joint.
Otherwise, Ford didn't have time for brazing or soldering.

If you found evidence of brass brazing, then I suspect the
car was wrecked and repaired using that process. I've never
personally seen anyone use brazing to repair vital structural
areas like frame rails and floor pans. That's why I was curious
about your methods.

Brazing the front frame support only . All other spots will be might wealded . I am sure that all panels are original. No signs of any repairs. Except for radiator support .

Looking good! I too was surprised to see some brazing work going on...glad you welded everything else in place...my 65 outer cowl panel had a spot of brass on each w/s corner area but none elsewhere in the cowl. Rock on!
