Ahhh, I remember my truck, it had an inch and a half of filler up there! TWO GALLONS of filler was applied before I touched it with sand paper.

|hotwheels1||Well i have to tell ya, this is actually allot of work. I figured i could do the job in a couple of weeks, but now it's been over a month. Chopping the top wasn't the hard part, it's all the little things you have to do to make the chop look like it really isn't there. I hate to say it, but i have kind of hit a burn out point and still feel overwhelmed with the amount of stuff i have to do to finish the chop, welding, bondo, sanding, priming, sanding, painting, sanding, etc.......anyways, here are a few pics of where i am at right now.|

|adantessr||If you already have a DA sander, plan on stripping all the old paint with 80 grit . I wouldn't put any paint over the old original paint .|

Yeah, sand the paint out PAST where your primer is going to end. So that your primer has adhesion all the way out to the end. You can mask it so you don't get overspray all over the place. But there is no need to mask it like that, just sand out further than you are going to prime. Something out on the outer edges like 180 or 240 or even a red scuff pad is fine. If you are going to do a nice paint job you will need to remove all that paint anyway and you can correct it all then.
