    Had a photo made and hung in the shop for some inspiration

    [​IMG]

    Focused today on plugging the unwanted holes in the firewall.

    I am sooo tired of welding and grinding so I laid down some fiberglass today

    [​IMG] [​IMG] [​IMG] [​IMG]

    I didn't want to use wood like the factory did in the spare tire hat channel so I bought one of those real dense plastic cutting boards to cut and use

    Some progress today, using bondo glass for the rough spots then plain filler to clean it up

    You are doing what I should be doing but keep putting off. Tedious body stuff. Good work.

    How I fixed the after market tail light panel being shorter than side panel

    [​IMG]
    [​IMG] [​IMG] [​IMG] [​IMG]

    The side panel was a bit wavy probably from all the welding so out with the fiberglass......what a pain to sand

    I usually grind the first coat with a flexy disk.
