    Grampa would repeat this story to us all the time. his first car was a model t because they couldn't afford the model a that was priced at $25. the model t was $17 and then they financed it for 1.6 years and his payment was $1 a month.

    If the filler prices go up enough it might even get more economical to do the metal work better instead if just going for cave and pave. :D

    I do collision work for a living and hate just hate to use mud I'll spend more time on the metal work and then apply a thin layer of glaze mud is the rute of all evils in body work it seams a guy just keeps chasing it. I guy I work with is the pile on mud guy asked him why and he said he doesn't get payed to pass around on metal work he wants to get it done fast never could understand that. Always perfect your metal first.
