Haha, wish he was close to me to finish up my rear corners. They are acceptable but definitely could use a real bodyman's touch. I just don't know when to stop sanding it seams. I either sand to much... or leave to much, even though it feels uniform to my hands. When I paint it I can always see my imperfections at the right angle. I don't do a lot of body work but from what I see I should be skimming the entire panel with filler and blocking the entire thing. I get lazy and focus on only the area I think I was fixing and create high / lows. I'd like to do more so I can get good at it.... It would be cool to be able to actually fix a dent in a car that I cared about the paint.

I skin coated his to make it uniform. Both sides are actually finished in 180 grit and ready for primer. I just need to skim the front panel and corners to prime it all Saturday morning. Hopefully fully painted by Saturday afternoon, if not Monday night it will be green again. The flares are getting a semi gloss Hotrod black. The inside is getting the bedliner treatment wrapped over the belt rail.

Didn't make it to paint today. The front panel kicked my ***.

Here is the hinge plate filler 5/16 rod welded between the plate and front panel:



welded and smoothed.




Got it in primer today:







Beasley has the rest. He can upload them when he gets Internet.

Question: What's going to happen with the wheel well arches/cuts inside the tub? Also, sweet job on the primer/filler/sanding/welding/being better than the rest of us, Hendrix. Now, answer yo' PMs!

If it's worth doing, then it's worth overdoing.

I asked the same. It's to store gallon jugs in, you can fit 4-6 in those to areas safely.

4 fit perfectly in the old wells strapped in.

I am worried that the weight out back will require even more weight up front to balance the tongue weight .

I see you were able to access the google drive.


Going to sand it down and look for imperfections tomorrow. Then paint it Tuesday or Wednesday night. Hope to have the bedliner sprayed by the weekend. When are you headed back east?
