Wow! Those reflections in that panel are arrow straight. That takes a ton of time (and talent) to do that well.

Awesome work!

Yes, joedoh that is an old city parking sign I cemented next to my driveway.


I was really wondering if it was a shop in an alley!

Jan , , , , "OCD" (lol) . . . . . that sounds like my wife (Diana) . . .

but, sometimes , I change it too "QVC" (inside joke) .............

Your Body-Work looks 1st class (from an ol' bodyman's point of
view) . . . . . and, what's the "rip" . . . . . (do it everyday for 10-12
years) . Nobody like 'sanding' . . . . . . . . . but, you'll like the 'results' .

again , Great job . . . . I'm watching & learning (more) .

later , jim

Re: Jans 53

So now I have all 4 fenders the cab and hood sanded. I will go over them and look for small flaws then on to bedsides. Tomorrow morning going to take a trip to summit and pick up a tailgate, front bed panel and maybe a new grill.
Has anyone seen the goodmark tailgate? the price difference isnít much between it and the mar-k but they donít have the mar-k in stock....is it worth paying shipping and waiting for the mar-k? Also anyone have the OER grill? Any info on quality?

Now Iíll leave you with todayís picture of my OCD session.

Re: Jans 53

That’s with the wax and grease remover before it evaporated, so I can check the straightness while it’s wet. If I could sand it that shiny I wouldn’t bother painting.
