    It won't need 5 gallons of bondo to make it straight.

    Damn good job sir.

    Thanx Nads!! When i took my chevy to Jeff Myers she had so much bondo on her I was pretty bummed. But being new at this bondo thing i really didint know how to apply it correctly, so i ended up with way too much and Jeff took it all down where you could see metal everywhere. He spent 3 days mowing it down with 36g. I felt bad for Jeff, but i'm pretty stoked it's almost all off!! NOW THIS ONE!! It really won't need much and i'm pretty damn stoked!! Thanx again Nads!!

    BTW....Jeff taught me how to apply filler the right way!!:)

    For x-mas will you build me a '32 5-window body that's already chopped 5 or 6 inches and the roof filled?

    :D:D I have faith! Besides, you wouldn't be chopping an original... you would be making it from SCRATCH! ;):D

    I'll be by next week to pick it up. Is that good for you or do you need more time?

    By the way, added a couple tags for you... :p

    Dang Ian...that doesn't look like beginners luck. I agree with Jeff, I think you're in the car builder relocation program. You're standing out like a sore thumb. Good work though, looking just as good as your Chevy.

    Thanx Shooter!! The 51 is in Oklahoma getting upholstered . End of november she should be home. Jeff is gonna pick her up in OK. then do the finishing touches like door glass , windshield and rear window garnish, etc..... I couldn't have finished the 51' without Jeff. I learned a lot from him and I made a great friend!!
