Who needs an “A” team?

The guys and I have been putting in some good time on the Camaro and its paying off. First thing this morning, Chase sprayed the bedliner on the inside and trunk area as well as the inner front fenders. When he was done with that, he sprayed the semi gloss black on the other side of the inner fenders and around the inside of the rear body panel. This afternoon all three of us picked a panel and started blocking the slick sand that was sprayed this past Monday.Blocking is a procedure that ensures the panels are as straight as an arrow. It removes the waves and ripples. Its a very tedious process but well worth it. We first start out with 80 grit on a long block. We sand the panel with this until the entire panel is smooth. The low spots will show darker because the block glides right over it and the bare metal spots high spots. Body filler will be used to fill in the low areas and the high spots will be tapped down and filled. Once we have all the dents fixed we will prime these parts again. Phew! Believe me, it will pay off.
