Chris fixed a couple of tiny spots that showed up, then passed it off to Paul for the FINAL primer. While they were working on that, was working on the inside of the right door. We straightened out the inside where patch panels were welded in and also fixed a few dents and rust pits. The inside of the right door was finished up today, but not in time to get primer on it. Next week we will block the slick sand thats on the outside of the door and prime both sides. Once this is complete we will prep the hood, both doors and the front valence for paint.

Trimmed out and moving along

When replacing parts on cars, you must paint the inside portion of the panels so they match when you open it. If not, we would have silver door jambs on a black car. After Chris trimmed them out we were able to get them mounted up before we called it a day. Tomorrow we will get these new panels sanded and prepped up for paint. Hopefully, we can get some paint on it tomorrow as well. We do have a busy day tomorrow but we will try to add this one to the list.
