Thanks Chuck, Thanks Sherwood,

The idea of mopping up the solder with a suitable solder sponge is what I was hoping for. I have some old earth straps that I can try for copper braid and I have some steel wool on hand to try.

There is the corner at the upper edge of the engine cover, where a lot of factory lead loading is used. I sawed through this area and it was up to 1/4" this in the middle of the puddle. You can see why they did this once the lead is gone and the multiple panel confluence is exposed.

As with most projects, I am sure this will expand;
I stared scraping away some paint and found at least 3 layers of silver, at least 2mm thick. Quite the red flag for the weight conscious fanatic lurking within...

I guess sanding will remove the last of it before I attempt to weld on it.
