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!

Re: New Appreciation

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

Re: New Appreciation

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
