I'll pick up the serface cleaner today.
I sanded with 120 last night.
We'll cut back to 200 tonight and see how she's looking.

I still notice some scars from where the 80grit was used on the bondo.

GETTING WARMER

I've got 80, 120, 150, 200, 400, 600
I think we're about done with the 150 but there are still some swirl marks from the sanding. Will these disapear with primer?

hard to tell if i don't see them, if you can see them and you are done with the sanding no, put a slim bondo coat and then sand with a higher one. If you are almost done with the sanding, then get a higher number and test if they will go away.

I'd like to publicly thank Rob and Jason for their continued help with this project. Both of them have been stopping by getting down and dirty with me to finish this project. After laying the primer lastnight, you can see the few small spots that need work. (I hope you enjoyed dinner).
I love my wife with all my heart and I can't thank her enough for helping me to make our guests feel at home!

I'd also like to send a big thank you out to Tom, Tony, James and countless others for all of the advise and tips.

She seems to be coming together well.

SEM's has good products. i use their rattle can primer also to spot stuff sometimes when i'm lazy. it's good for what it is. but nothing beats primer that comes out of a paint gun.

What we really need is a compressor for his orbital. If we had that we would have been done weeks ago. :laughing6

haha. doing things by hand can be easy...but you just have to be more perfect with every step you take. what i mean by that is not packing on the filler/glass/primer. just put enough that you can sand easily by hand.

in other words....BABY STEPS
