The car is in the paint shop and I am working with my buddy, Steve, doing grunt work and learning what goes into a quality paint job. So far, we have filled the worst low spots and paid a lot more attention to panel gaps and fit. We are starting to sand filler and will probably spend most of this week just skimming and sanding. So far, I have learned at least four things. Weld ALL pinholes and finish all grinds. ALL of them. Get the metal smooth as possible. Shrink any knots and raise any small low spots. You can move door edges, fender corners, etc if you try. Get all the edges lined up with the rest of the body so that you don't end up with any "fat" edges. Sanding filler is a skill that can be learned and I am learning. I'm also learning that it is an extremely messy process! Jesus, that dust piles up and gets everywhere! The hood peak turned out really well. We glued it in with panel adhesive and sanded the adhesive down. I don't think I would ever have gotten it as straight if I had welded it.
