Round and true

After sanding the high build primer we could tell the body needed a little work. The areas with a greenish tint are thin coats of body filler that we applied to take care of any slight dents and waviness in the metal.

The body filler is then sanded to make the body smooth and ready for paint. Since there isn’t a straight line on a beetle you can’t say the body is straight and true, but it is smooth and without waviness or dents.

In case you are wondering, the right front fender was damaged beyond repair and a replacement was obtained and is being painted as a separate item. It will be installed on the car after the car is painted.
