[Mgs] aluminum hood gauge

Subject: [Mgs] aluminum hood gauge

Greeting illustrious List members.
   I have an aluminum hood on Project 71 MGB.
   I has a patch of body filler coming off in a big chunk right in the middle. 
Hood is dented, filled poorly.
   I will first use heat to remove old Bondo. Then, I'll try to straighten out 
the dent with hammer, dolly, and shrink alloy by heating and quenching.
   Should these attempts fail, I will use my Hobart Handler 150 with aluminum 
wire to put a new patch in place. 

So, at long last, the question is addressed: What Gauge aluminum is the hood 
covered in?

Other suggestions welcome, as long as they're polite ones!

---Sorry if I used the wrong word or spelling for "gauge" I get these wicked 
headaches, they badly affect my concentration. And sometimes, I ramble on and 
about things that aren't related to the subject at hand, too.
It's all on account of a car accident I had a .....
