Really getting schooled on bodywork and paint

This Mustang project is really showing me how little I know. But, that was one of the reasons I took the project on in the first place. I'm in the middle of painting and am finding things I worried about are not that big a deal, where as things I thought were fine I had all wrong. But, thats OK, it's all part of the learning process. Once I get though this, the next one will come easier.

I don't think it would come as easy without the internet though. This board and some others have been a huge help. Just getting turned on to SPI products has helped. But also searching other peoples posts and reading what other people have had problems with.

I will never look at a rusted wrinkled body panel the same way again

(Not sure what the point of my post was, but working on this car everyday for four months I needed to express myself)

Hang in there, the learning curve is long when you're looking for better than average results. Today we are lucky enough to share information on the net for all to benefit. I've always said the only people that can truly appreciate body and paint perfection are those who have attempted it themselves.
