    Got the rust out of the dent with a wire wheel and 40 grit


    Fiberglass filler


    Pulled the bumper so I can level the runs off the car, this way I can prime the fenders while I'm working on the bumper.

    Left fender primed


    More leveling on the hood, all good now.


    The paint was cracked due to a dent, busted out the torch and straightened that out, tossed some filler on to fix the tooling marks from pushing the dent out.


    Used a pin puller to start taking the dent out of the rocker, used a jack as assistance to push the bottom back up while I pulled the dent out so I didn't stretch the metal.


    Fiberglass filler to level out the dents I couldn't pull.

    Hood is primed, its all scuffed and ready for paint




    Sanded down the filler, put some glazing putty on to fill some smaller holes and dips


    Sanded down some high spots but it needed more fiberglass filler so this is the second coat


    I've been working on this continuously for almost 20 hours straight.. I can't function.. Its bed time

    We should start a pool on whether it will be done in time. I went there last night, there is still lots to do and the list seems to get longer and longer.


    Half of the money will go to closest guess, the other half to Anonymous for his work.

    Its like you are the leonadro davinci painting the Mona Lisa with that body work 👌anyone who has ever done or attempted to do body work knows what I mean, it takes a special kind of person with tons if patients to actually do to RIGHT, not just the old slap some bondo on it followed by a palm sander rattle can and wala..
    REMEMBER anything is for sale for the right price.
    Custom retrofit headlights done by my friend exist, if you are tired of your dull light look and are looking for something amazing for an even more amazing cost, make sure you shoot him a message. love every " of the amazing work he has done,
