Got a ton of sanding done today. Thought it was all ready, but turns out I still need a few small things to deal with.

Did a little work on the bottom, I plan to have most of this covered so I'm not looking for perfection here. This is before sanding.


Got it all hung up and ready for paint.

Now for my problem. Still had a few small areas where the epoxy didn't harden. So I cut that out with a dremal and filled in with spot filler. I'll sand that smooth in the morning along with a few runs I had. I'll pick up another pint of prime and finish it off. Then paint it over the weekend.

A few bugs got in while painting. So I'll be picking up some 1500 or 2000 sand paper and wet sanding a few problems out. Can't wait to see it on the car.
