10-06-2009 08:20 PM Body work continues
I didn't get to work as much this summer as I wanted too. I now have about 80 hours invested in the rough skim coats using structural and finish body filler. The body fit is great and it's rock solid now. I removed the body last weekend and placed it on a dolly so I can do the final finish work and I will be working on the chassis now.

I'm sure many of you know how difficult it is to do the metal work. I thought it would be going a little better. Right now my pro body guy has 60.5 hours invested refitting, shrinking, grinding and filling. Will I ever be done?

I could have saved a lot of time if I would have just bonded the fenders on and molded them into the body. This took a little longer but I'm happy with the outcome. 51.5 hours now for filler work.

Just a quick update. We now have about 41.5 hours in on the skim coat work. The reveal lines are now getting nice and crisp. Fender fit is also coming along.
