Prime and paint unless you have some spots you want to smooth out.

Do we need to apply a filler to the dash or just prime and paint?

Thanks
With sheet meal it could look nice and straight until you put paint on it and then the "waves" come out. I would apply a skim coat of filler once the high spots are knocked down and sand it smooth.

Clay got it finished and it was dark when i got out of the woods, I'll check it out tomorrow. We may have to go with a skim coat.

What about this? It's a little smaller than the HF, but I bet it continues to operate.

Man I hate to say it, but that one looks EXACTLY like the one I turned into a boat anchor! Notice the last 4 words of the description... imported for TP Tools. All the specs are identical.

Clay you continue to shoot yourself in the foot with a AK47 in full auto and reloading several times.Get the Ingersol Rand 8 inch gear driven DA Sander also known as a Mug Hog with 40 grit paper. That will calm your seas down quite a bit. Its much faster than a air file and is less likely to give you waves. Then hit the panel with your Dura Block sanding blocks, otherwise you are really making things much harder on yourself.

I would agree Scott, a good quality DA would be far more useful than an air file.

OWWWWWW! You would use the DA over surfaces with curves, or on flat surfaces onnly?

I already have one, but I was worried that I would remove TOO MUCH material, causing valleys. What PSI do you guys recommend?

George... I'm Scott, the guy that does the posting. Clay is my son who actually owns the Jeep (I gave it to him), and Dave is one of my Texas connections!

Scott, the DA is used on pretty much everywhere. I set mine at 100 PSI (8cfm) andI vary the speed with the actual lever. Just feel it out you will get used to it.
