here a few pics of guide coat maybe put on a little to thick, and then some after block sanding the left half of the car... i started using 400 then found it wasn't cutting the mustard and ended up using 180 .. will i need to sand finer before the spi epoxy or is 180 scratches okay for the spi epoxy? is this looking okay?






had to come in drink a beer and shower I was changing colors... do I just go after the spots where the paint was not touched.. and try tap down the spots where I broke through to metal?

Block sanding done!!!!! it is in pretty good shape... only a few dings, and a couple low spots, very shallow.. I will use the evercoat glaze on these spots correct.. then for the roof the evercoat gold, followed by the glaze correct. there are a couple little "pimples" like someone shot a bb gun from the inside of the car.. knocked down flush very easy with the body hammer... I did find a couple of welds from where the top was chopped 4.5 inches. on the inside of the window openings they are raised about 1mm or so should I grind these down or smooth out with glaze?

thanks
simon

I would recommend grinding those welds down then smoothing with filler or glaze. Maybe DBM would recommend something else.

180 is perfect,if you can run your hand over the high spots and feel them then tap them down and putty them ,two coats should do it,as far as the lows look at it sideways when your wet sanding if you see a wave thats unexceptable...fill it.other than that your doing much better than I would have expected.it looks great!!!!

LOL she likes all my cars.... she can't dive my mustangs since they are stick... the 29 is auto but she is scared she will "hurt it" so I don't have to worry there either.... thank you for the compliment... I told you I am one of those perfectionist kinda people... I want my shi* to be right. I'll sell the motorcycle for diapers... just thougth of one more question... I know I am full of them.... the door jams, inside of the doors, dash, window sills, and inside window frames, do I need to sand these with 180 or can I use a red pad on them?

thanks for all the help
simon
