That primer was just the first, "let's see how well we are doing with the chemical filler". The left quarter skin took a LOT more filler than I ever believed it needed to look good, but it does look good. We now have the right sail panel where we are happy with it. The NOS quarter had been around to swap meets and being loaded and unloaded from trailers and had numerous small dents along the side. That took a bunch of filler and time to get back flat too. Bodyman wants to get the whole back half in primer now, but I needed to finish the trunk seal gutter clean up and seam seal. I, also, stripped the interior quarter panels to bare and primed them. The left side had an old dent that I tried to ignore, but after primer, I had to fill it. Today was final sand, clean and prep for an attempt at shooting primer into the seal gutter, getting the extension panel covered and all the interior metal too.

Thanks, Tony. Been a very slow, labor intensive process, but happy that it won't be sitting all summer in bare metal. Right about now, I'm wishing I could be one of those check writers... LOL

But... when you are done it is so much more satisfying. At least that's what I keep telling myself.

Hopefully what I did today will feel satisfying when I wet sand the interior for color. Looks OK for a beginner...

The temp in my shop is on the cool side to paint in at 65 degrees and I turned it down to 62 for 2 days after this application, knowing the SPI would flow out better as it cured and the cool temp slowed that process even more. I didn't take any pics, but I was super pleased with the end result. The interior panels are nearly texture free.
I knew the extension panel wasn't going to be as good, as I ran out of paint on that before I got the coverage I wanted, still after 2 days, it was much better than right after application and I have already sanded out the minor texture and trash and it looks great. Still prepping for the overall shoot of the roof and back half, hopefully in the next couple days, with the weather getting into the 70's !
