    well two days ago i got it all welded and ground down couple coats of filler and sanded and just got done primeing, lugging the huge compressor down the lil hill that seems 10x bigger, then mixing the primer and shooting hit. i started to clean up and wait for the primer to dry. well it was so i went to put the light in and the chrome bezel. well it wouldnt fit so im cursing and throwing a fit all because one little part wasnt prefectly straight and blah blah so i really tried shoving it in and i fucking broke the all my welds on the top and it was breaking down the side of the tailgate. well i was pissed so i lugged the damn compressor and shit inside and went out.

    then yesterday i ground it all down re-welded really good this time and ground that down and cleaned up and went out.

    then today i got a coat of filler on around it and the light now fits because i guess when the welds cracked it unbent some. i sanded cleaned up and went out. lol i havnt been in the mood becuase ive been so tensed latly and i would most likey take a hammer to a window if i worked non stop all day like i was last couple weeks.

    yesterday i started to mark were my drive side marker light will be.
    before that i bent up my box to recess the light and now i just need to drill and cut some wholes and weld it in.
    thats all i pretty much did, oh and i scratched up my newly primered fender fucking with the damn hood:)

    other than that i removed my hood latch cable for the new one.
    worked on the interior heat vent shit
    looking at the wireing im gonna need to fuck with for the v8...i get a head ache everytime i try to go in and figure shit out, i might consult my dad the electrical techniction for this one


    and today all i did was sit and wire wheel the block and driver side head

    welp...

    as of about a week ago i finished welding in a the second side marker light and finished off the body work.

    yesterday i ground out and welded up the roof seams. and primerd. only got drive side done.

    Now im thinking what im gonna do for the door handles and locks. i was thinking and i kinda fucked myself, with this one. i dont have money to by a door handle kit because im throwing it into this v8. im gonna be getting some money soon so i might cave in and put the rebuild off for a couple weeks. i need these done because im painting the truck before summers over and i need to get the v8 done by the end of summer. the truck will be back on the road at the end of nov. and i dont wanna dick around with the v8 in the cold and snow. other that handle im pretty much finished with body mods.
    so far its:

    rollpan
    frenched tailgate
    caddy tail lights
    side marker lights
    shaved wiper cowl
    shaved roof seam
    shaved roof rack
    shaved badges
    updated 92 grill
    rust begone!
    sun roof
    new black paint job

    +door handles eventually

    but i figured i could reshoot the doors because its no custom color or anything.

    for now i was thinking about removeing the handle and using the lock to open the door.

    i need some input on what you guys think, no one reads this thread anymore but tell me what you think.

    i heard if you dont use kitty hair before bondo ( meaning putting bondo on bear metal) the filler will crack but im not positive

    also is this your first time doing body work also i believe black shows all the imperfections in body work but just take your time and im sure you can do it be sure to post lots of pics of painting it i was thinking about trying to spray mine also

    yea bondo or most fillers arent water proof. kitty hair is. i really dont worry to much about filler to bare metal kinda stuff. if i have to use a good amount to smooth it out, i do a coat of hair then sand it down with some 50 then if its still pretty low i give it another another coat of kitty hair. then usually sadn that down with 80. then its usually pretty close and i use a light coat of filler over that sand it down with 80 then to 120 then yadda yadda yadda. i know its prob not the right way but it works for me and i will be taking a collison repair cousre half a day when school starts up again. but then theres sometimes (a good day) when i weld it up nice n sexy and i dont really need at fillers. but thats not to often. like my upper roof seams really didnt use any filler on it because it flexs more near there. but then ur metal work needs to be flawless. like i said its not often it happens for me

    yea pretty much first time for body work painting primering ive done some welding before.
    haha yea i no black is a bitch but that what makes it so awsome.
    im confident in myself and i can always sand down and reshoot.

    and im gonna get some pics of other shit ive done but my cameras dead.


    and a update for today is
    i shaved the antenna hole and finally got the passenger fender in primer, now all i have left is to re primer my hood. finish sanding and shapping my passenger caddy tail, and quarter panal, and prime that and the tailgate. shes sooo close...
    oh i also undercoated my wheel wells and will soon finishing sraping and painting the frame.

    so any thoughts on the handles?????????
