I am going to finish feathering it at the belt line and see how easy it is to peel the paint off along the belt line where it blistered. Then I am going to strip it to bare metal the full length of the belt line area it the rest of it has good adhesion. A shop could not do it this way but my time is free and if I should get lucky this thing will block out better than it was. After 4 years all shrinkage is done and it will have less material than it did before I started. Wish me luck.
