HEY GUYS SORRY TO BUT IN, BUT I HAVE A QUESTION. DID YOU GET YOUR GUN FROM SPRAYGUNPLANET.COM? BECAUSE I AM THINKING ABOUT GETTING ONE FROM THERE AND I SEEN YOU SAY THAT YOU WERE MOST LIKELY GOING TO GET IT FROM THERE. I DIDN'T SEE IF YOU ACTUALLY DID IN PREVIOUS POSTS, IF YOU DID MY BAD. THANKS

Did some more sanding of the "bondo" today, thought that was going to be it then I could use my glaze, but I can't get my roof area "perfect" so it looks like tomorrow a little more bondo work, my neighbor who worked in a body shop when he was a teen and early 20's told me I am tring to hard.. he said once it is all primed and painted one color and if a light color you will never know... but for some reason I can not accept that ... if I run my hand over the roof area I can feel high and lows but if I look down it , it doesn't look bad ... I just can't accept it like that... so it pushes my priming back a little further.

Thats a constant battle for us...drawing a line between prefect and still making money. Lighter colors will hide a lot,the reflection of the sun off the roof will prevent you from looking to close,(blind them with brillance) but on the other hand your quest for personal perfection is never a bad thing so just keep going untill youve reached a point where your happy or give up ,whatever comes first.you can always redo it better after youve gained a little more experiance. Its ez to get caught up in the minor details and lose sight of the big picture. Be proud of what youve accomplished ...my first job looked good but nothing like I do now. I hope this helps....Dont forget,if your going to be driving this car off from the chapel theres more to worry about than a perfect roof,like making sure it starts in front of everybody, getting a jump start in front of the church just aint cool.

well I put went out and did some more bondo work, and sanded it all down, looking better now if I get right down and look down it looks straight except for 2-3 areas no bigger than a half dollar that need to be raised... on the drivers side... the passenger side looks almost yes almost perfect... I think I am going to have to try do some work after work if im not to beat to stay on schedule... just under three months to go.. of course our nice cool summer has now changed to the typical hot humid summer atleast for the next week, the week after looks nice but my father inlaw to be is off that week so I have to do his job as well as mine... so the next two weeks maybe out of the question... I am just scared I don't have enough time... everyone keeps telling me that I have plenty of time... once the roof is done all I have to do is glaze my bondo, sand 400 then prime, wet sand 600 seal dry sand 600 paint... how deep of a scratch will the epoxy fill? 80,180,220? maybe I am just feeling the wedding crunch!

thanks,
simon

sand your bondo up to 80 then glaze and sand the glaze with 180 then 320,prime and sand primer with 400 use a white guide coat over black primer or black guide coat over gray primer this helps you see what your sanding much better
