it's really not hard to pick up on. All you really have to do is befriend someone who's good at it and pay attention to their techniques and ask lots of questions, then give it a go!

I only started painting about a year ago....

worked on it a bit yesterday. I'm in the part of the build that sucks the absolute most.......laying body filler and block sanding for hours to get things to look right. These next four pictures are at least 6hrs worth of filler/sanding work :(

this is after one coat of tiger hair filler, followed by a coat of regular filler.



Then after some touch-ups and whatnot I decided to spray with primer to see where I'm at. It's getting pretty close, but still needs some work. The major shapes are there, but I need to do some more filler work and start stepping my sandpaper grits up so it smooths out nice. right now it's in 80-grit for shape, so I'm gonna jump to 180 on the next pass, then 320, then I'll spray the whole deal in primer/surfacer (high-build) to sand out with 600 and 800 grit before sealer and paint.







probably have another 6-10hrs of work to go just on this quarter, then repeat for the other side, and repeat for the passenger front fender. Lots of work still to go, trying to keep motivated.

It's hell being a perfectionist, but you know the end result will be worth it! Keep up the great work, and thanks for sharing.

Tonight my buddy Nick came by to lend a hand again......We blocked down the driver rear quarter again, and found what I think to be the last imperfections....I think once this layer gets sanded out it'll be ready for high-build primer......



then we sanded down the excess glue from the passenger rear quarter and laid up the seams with tiger-hair filler.

Checko stopped by again and got me off the couch. The driver side rear is done. Just needs primer-surfacer and 400-grit wetsand before paint. Going to get up tomorrow and jump right on the passenger side and see how far I can get before I get too tired/frustrated.
