Today i sanded around the rear window where i had welded then applied bondo. First sanding was done with 80 gritt and the second sanding was done with 120 gritt. Once i got it smooth around the window, i sprayed my primer coat and will start wet sanding around the cab corners and the rear window so that it doesn't look like there is a seam on the back of the cab.....then i will apply my spot putty if needed to fill any holes that may appear in the bondo.

Looking very good at this point..

It will work out a little easier... If you spot the primer without the tape.. You will blend it better...

Yeah, sand the paint out PAST where your primer is going to end. So that your primer has adhesion all the way out to the end. You can mask it so you don't get overspray all over the place. But there is no need to mask it like that, just sand out further than you are going to prime. Something out on the outer edges like 180 or 240 or even a red scuff pad is fine. If you are going to do a nice paint job you will need to remove all that paint anyway and you can correct it all then.

If you already have a DA sander, plan on stripping all the old paint with 80 grit . I wouldn't put any paint over the old original paint .

Well i have to tell ya, this is actually allot of work. I figured i could do the job in a couple of weeks, but now it's been over a month. Chopping the top wasn't the hard part, it's all the little things you have to do to make the chop look like it really isn't there. I hate to say it, but i have kind of hit a burn out point and still feel overwhelmed with the amount of stuff i have to do to finish the chop, welding, bondo, sanding, priming, sanding, painting, sanding, etc.......anyways, here are a few pics of where i am at right now.

The burn out can easily happen if you don't take some time to enjoy other things . You still have a couple days of North American Wapiti season (Elk) . Take some time off and enjoy the hollidays and you will find that after the New Year kicks in you will have a renewed enthusiasm . Sometimes ya just gotta get away from it or it seems like it has taken over your life . It actually does . Have fun ..........Allan..........
