    not body lines but seems

    was wondering what is the best way to shave off these seams that are circled in this pic......an old dude told me they were just simple clamping spot to hold the panels together done by the factory, but the majority of ppl are telling me not to shace them cuz they are stress points for the body.... so i dunno what the hell to think, i figured id just weld em up....
    so what do you guys suggest and what kinda glares are those in the pic too..

    thanks peace

    i wiped both of them with body filler on mine. the seem b/t the D-pillar adn the roof is still good, the one under the back door is starting to crack though. if you shave them, i would say just weld in in then, smooth and you should be good.

    I just bondoed mine up. I figure the first time I launch at the track on slicks with 4.11 gears and 550+ lb-ft of torque I'm just going to end up tearing the roof off anyways.

    i was about to come on here and ask if anyone had a problem smoothing out the seems near the back cuz on mine the top of the seem sticks out farther then the bottom of the seem but now hearing everyone say they cracked on them im thinking about just taking the bondo off and leaving it...what about on the 2 doors between the door and the window that little seem do people have problems with that one cracking too?

    you should NEVER use bondo to shave or fill ANYTHING!! bondo is for smoothing out metal, not filling holes!

    what are you talking about, thats what bondos used for, it says it right on the can, its a filler, its one of the ways to shave the body line on teh 1st gens if you dont have a welder, works great. of course u use it to smooth out metal but u can use it to fill things, not big holes but u can, u can use bondo on teh roof of the blazer to shave the roofrack, and it'll work fine, unless u got alot of bass...cough dub7 cough ..then its pointless
