In a Jamb

Sometimes it's hard to use a block!
This one is kind of interesting, not to much
for a straight block.
I'm still working on the door.

Looks good Jim, don't those little quarter panels crack you up? God what a difference from when I got into this business. A quarter panel on the average car of the day would have enough metal to skin the doors and the quarter easy!

I used my old puller that has a hook on it & I had to drill holes
to use it. My stud welder wasn't strong enough.
I welded the holes close afterwards.

Brian: yeah, those qtr's are cute!!!

Here's the door. I sprayed G2 poly over it all, blocked it,
then 2K, blocked w/ 150 grit, then 2K again and final 600 grit.
May be overkill but I waned it straight.
It's my daughters car so it's going to be better done
and no money for it. I told her it's her birthday present,
that's near.

Well, it's done.
Took me longer than usual due to some health problems,
but I'm back and ready for the next one.
There's always a "next one" (LOL)

Beautiful work as always; is that a SSU or a BC/CC? And, how far did you blend it out?

It's base/clear, that's all I use in repair work.
I put a few coats to cover the door first then
pulled the masking and sprayed the door again while blending half
ways into the front door and rear Qtr.
I've been using a base by "Metalux" and getting really
good matches with it.


Brian: Thanks, coming from you, it means a lot.
I have upped my quality a lot by forcing myself to coarse sand my
primers first before finish sanding.
My panels are coming out much straighter than ever before.

Amazing work, thanks for sharing! I would have never guessed it's been hit or the paint blended by the "after" pics.
