I will be hand sanding with long blocks once the rough sanding is done. Start with 120 grit, then finish with 220.

Yep. I'll be working on that this weekend. Once I'm happy with it I'll prime with 2 part sandable primer. then I'll hit that with 400 grit until very smooth. Once all painted and cleared, perhaps 4 coats or more. I'll wet sand with 2000 grit.

Even with a respirator I can still feel it in my lungs.

After much sanding, I found many low spots. These do not show up with the DA sander.

I'm getting close now so I'm looking closer and closer to the details. found a small crack. Looked closer and found it was more then a crack. There was a void in the glass. I dug it out and cleaned it up.

Another low spot in the front. You can only take the highs down so far.


The other side, same thing.

Took this high down a little to far and found a rivet.

I gave everything another coat of bondo. I'll let this sit over night and give it a quick hit with the DA sander, then back to the blocks. This should be the last full coat. A few touch ups after this and on to the finishing sanding.
