    Fingers worn from sanding...then more blocking on my 56 courier. Struggling with the body lines that are from below the tail light to a fade near the doors. This cars been in the low desert since '62 so at least it's a relief from the rust repairs I'm used to on my Minnesota cars. So far it seems like the little dings are going to take forever. Add to the mix trying to used new and "improved" materials I've had problems with Dolphin materials not hardening...a mixture of 100% to 3-4% huh? No doubt it's probably my fault. Good luck

    Didn't you just rub it into us in another post, how you were "sittin in the sun drinkin' iced tea"?

    And yes, I am doing body work, been doing body work, and will be doing body work for some time. I'm building a custom and that's the name of the game. When I'm done, I plan to rob a bank to pay for the car, by then I'll have no finger prints left.:D

    just got done with body work on a chopper, painted it tonight.

    the bodywork part sucks ass, but after its sprayed theres nothing better than sitting back and taking a look at some paint.

I built the car in primer .Mostly roughed in real well .Need some more pictures of projects ,In the bodywork stage ,I hope this gives some of us motivation ,The funniest part that so many guys are afraid of this step and Its so boring and easy .

    I just got my off-topic '73 Duster back from the soda blaster and parked back in the garage today.
    A bare metal body on a rotisserie is better than Viagra!

    It's pretty clean, but I'm going to be learning a bit about body work on a quarter panel, and pulling dents with a stud gun.
