Just realized it's taken me nearly a year to do body work. I hate it nearly as much as it hates me!! Filler dust gives me an awful sinus infection nearly every time I would sand even with a mask...yuck!!

Anyway...going backwards a bit here are a few pics of the worst areas I had to deal with and some finished pics

...one bit of advice:

DONT BUY FENDERS THAT SOMEONE ELSE WELDED EYEBROWS ON!!...Unless you check the fit of the h/light bucket and chrome surround first!! I had to rework both fenders, removing the eyebrows and rewelding them after removing a 1/4" of filler!! Some freak'n sob's should not work on cars!

A few pics in the driveway since it finally quit raining...but not much sun to speak of to see the flake in the copper.

I know the body work is done, but I REALLY like these respirators for sanding and such https://www.3m.com/3M/en_US/company-...4780266&rt=rud
