thanks, martin. Weird thing was the most messed up parts turned out the best. They looked like they were primed twice, especially the doors. The only two body flaws were the fender and plane above the main body line on the quarters it's pretty straight but I should have skimmed it twice. Would have had I known he was only gonna prime once. then I go get some water and he's sanding the primer on the quarter with a 8" motor guard block on a long straight panel. I would have gotten my 16" 3M block but he's a grump. If I would have blocked that I would have known what area needed ' a piece of somethin' simply cause the longer block would tell you. If the cheapo wanted to save primer I'd mask below the quarter and top and spot prime, or fill and spot prime. done! damn painter! maybe next time I should out of the blue decide that I can just add one coat of filler and say, " since the boss is screwing me on cars I can justifiably give you a car full of pinholes and 40 grit scratches. Have at it...buddy!"
