I've been stripping down all of the sheetmetal on my truck (57 Chevy 3100)--
And it seems that one of the previous owners got a little "Plastic-Happy". I'm just picking up on the art of bodyworking as I go along, so much of this is new to me, and I'd hate to waste everyone's time with a stupid question--
I'm just a little perplexed as to why THE ENTIRE TRUCK is covered in plastic?? I mean there is some minor damage in some areas, a couple bumps and bruises, but does this warrant covering all of the sheetmetal?
Regardless of the answer I get, I'd be interested in knowing the strategy behind "Skim Coating", when it is correct to skim coat, and when it is not.
As always, thanks for sharing your knowledge with me.
