Just thought I'd finally take a few min. to put some pics into the blog.

My last few posts were actually Threads I created in the forums.

For the past 3 months, I've been basically learning ALL about body work. Duraglass filler, regular bondo (Rage Gold) and lightweight bondo, glazing putty,...using hammer, pick and dolly.
I've learned that a body-mans worst nightmare is a bad welder! Unfortunately, I'm both of those.

After the black Epoxy Primer in the previous blog,... I went with the above fillers based upon the depth of the body flaw.
Then, on went the Grey Filler Primer.
That helped fill the imperfections from the previous owners grinder marks and provided a uniform color and base over the various filler areas.

Here's some pics from the next stage,......more filler primer!
All they had in stock was yellow, so I went with it. The car is being blocked now.
180 grit to start,...next will be either 240 or 320, then final with 400. After that is the Sealer, then Color, then Clear.

    You can fairly easily see the darker yellow spots on the yellow primer which are all low spots.
    Quite a few of them eh? I've since put on a few more coats.
