New Appreciation
After stripping three panels (two fenders and a hood) down to bare metal and getting them primed and starting the finishing work, I have a new appreciation for those of you who do this every day. The prep work takes forever!

Just wait until you start block sanding. It's good for the shoulder muscles.

For 15 years that’s what I did day after day if I wasn’t block sanding I was doing metal work then the boss shot the paint and I sanded and buffed but he took the credit LMAO

Re: New Appreciation
Agreed. I did the first round of blocking and then found a shop to finish it LOL
