help sanding this,

I need help sanding this section. I welded in a new wheel well section and I did get a valley on this section but I end up with the filler being sanded flat and not getting the gentle curve of the box. Forget that blotch of filler,I tried to put some on yesterday to build it up abit but was way to hot outside yesterday.Can,t really see but is in this area

Re: help sanding this,

Id take the taillight out so its out of the way, you have to work an area large enough that as you sand you get a feel of the shape of the whole area not just a little square your low spot probably is a lot larger than you realize. Use a sanding block 18/20 long with 80grt for shaping, and use less hardner so you have more time to work it

Re: help sanding this,

I have an assortment of blocks. I tried widening my filler to a larger area and that seems to work better. Have to remember not to fill just the damaged area but go way past the damaged area. Thanks
