    This quarter had some serious damage when I first started. I made patches to replace the mangled sheet metal, and now skimming with fibreglass reinforced filler

    Funny how mid 40s feel warm when block sanding. I got the bottom half of the driver's door done and the bottom of the quarter panel. The trunk lid is coming along also.

    This is the kind of stuff that is so far beyond my skillset it isn't even funny. Nice work. Really enjoying following your work.

    Block sanding is pretty easy to learn, doing the filler takes a lot of trial and error to do well. Both require plenty of masking tape to help keep body lines straight.

    1/8 inch landau foam makes it a bit better, but still a little lumpy

    Having done the headliner myself a few times, I can tell you it will look perfect whence installed. You won't notice small wrinkles at all, especially "up there."
