Here is a crappy cell phone pic of one of the rims I was sanding today, it had tiny little nicks all around as if it were used as a cymball, they all disappeared without taking but a tiny bit off.
awesome , thanks for the info itll be a big help. i actually ended up buying 80 & 120 lol. its nice n sanded now but i haven't primed yet . its too cold in this pos state and i dont have garage access right now ( cousins truck is dead and in pieces in there ) so im just takin my time on these lol. i hate having the stuff for the car sitting in my basement and NOT ON THE CAR !!!

mikebontoft yes it hard to sand. electric sander ftw.

Geezer JB weld is pretty hard to sand. If the rash isn't too bad a body filler should do.
12-06-2012 10:41 PM
mikebontoft how bad is the rash? Might have to do a few layers. I thought I could fill mine in one go but it's too wet.
12-06-2012 10:36 PM

mikebontoft no, it just has a faster curing time which would be nice.
