Here a dent, there a dent

IMG_4704 IMG_4691 IMG_4692 IMG_4696 IMG_4698 IMG_4699 IMG_4701These are the rear fenders for the 1952 Ford pick up. So far we have applied an epoxy primer and 3 coats of slick sand to the outside. The inside of these fenders have been coated in POR 15 and has a couple of coats of Raptor liner. Today we sanded the Slick sand and started the body work process. The darker areas of the fender are low, or where there are dents.  Yes, there are quite a few of them. Chris got right to work first thing this morning. He started by sanding the panel to show the low and high spots.  Once those were all located, he started spreading the filler. Once filler was in the spots the block party started. A block was used to flatten out the high spots and fill in the low. This process will be repeated until the panel is perfectly straight. When the bodywork is all done, we will prime them again with a urethane primer. Tomorrow we continue the body work on these.
