Body Work

 

With work being busy November was slow month, more body work completed and getting close to the final rub down.

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

Once i was happy that the filler was nice and level and the lines were good, the whole car was flatted down with 120grit paper on a woodern block.

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

I also spent some time on the inside of the door shuts and door frames, these areas will be seen clearly when the doors are open and need to look as good as the rest of the body, these areas are tight, fiddley & very time consuming, but the results will speak for themselves.

 

 

The T tops were stripped down and sanded back ready for the high build primer.

 

 

 

Once the 120grit was complete the car was cleaned down and a final run over with my hand and soft cloth to check for any inperfections that might have escaped me.

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

A short post this month partly down to work commitments, partly down to the nature of the work, the camera at this stage doesnt pick up on the finer aspects of the sanding down, but next month the body goes off to the spray shop for the primer.
