Bodywork still sucks

Postby greg pettit on Tue Dec 09, 2008 1:51 am

But it sucks less and less the more I do.

Tomorrow is the big day, the car is going to a friend of mine's paint shop. Together, we're going to do the final prep work prior to paint, and then put some color on.

I think satin black is the final choice.

:lol:
I've been saying for years...if you like sanding, you'll LOVE body work!! Yes, it does suck....but it can be very rewarding. It was always kind of a zen experience for me...I could just kind of get into that zone when I was sanding and let my mind go away for a while... If you ever get the itch to do any more, feel free to stop by my place...I'll warm up the MIG and hand over a gallon of body filler. My '55 Willys Jeep tub needs ALL new floors (seriously, you could Fred Flintstone the thing with your feet through them), as well as a lot of work to the sides and fenders. The hood isn't too bad...I'll do that one :mrgreen: .
Seriously though I'm really looking forward to seeing it. Send me some more pictures of the finished product...I might not have your featured member stuff done by then. My new computer parts had a big problem, and I'm returning them for replacements...so I'm still not officially up and running yet :x .

We shot some primer on the car tonight!

Forgot the camera, though.

Anyway, there's a chance that the body may have turned out straighter than we originally anticipated. If that is indeed the case, the car will get gloss black in lieu of the satin.

Dang dude, that does look nice :P . But you're cheating...when you use a paint booth, you don't get bugs or little bits of dirt stuck in it :mrgreen: . It's really a good feeling after doing all that body work...finally seeing it all come together. I'm really looking forward to seeing how it turns out!!

Okay, if the paint shows up today, we're going to be spraying the topcoat on the Olds this evening.

I'll be sure to post up pics.
