Default Bodywork *Update*

So, i started working on my body work again so I can get this thing painted this summer.
Just to give you an idea of how much more work i gotta do, the only parts that are 100%done are: rear bumper, passenger side doors, roof, bottom half of the drivers side door, and around the drivers side light.
Molding in the drivers side light took me 3 days working about 3 hours a day. Theres no pin holes, 80/180 grit scratches, and i blocked/hand sanded it till it was perfect. built everything up with a lot of kitty hair fiberglass, filled in the major imperfections with bondo and finished it off with some lightweight bondo. Sh*t was s0o0o0o0 tedious. The passenger side is gonna be harder because my hood is bent from a crash and my bumper is ripped below the light.
The only other really hard part is finishing up shaving the 2 front fender body lines. All the other stuff is just little dents and high spots.
I know
so i borrowed my friends digi cam and pics will be up tonight.

The bodywork looks a little rough, but that can be fixed with some more time spent on it.
