    One mans 1200 quest

    thank you , I have a ways to go ( few dry spots that need color sanding and polish ) , but i'm happy with the color and the lines are crisp and for the most part I think the body is fairly straight. The more i looked at the car , it presented as a far more difficult car to do body work on .....body lines and contours and different shapes. I look at my 68 GMC or my Chevelle and it doesn't have as many and the panels are flatter and longer to sort out .

    One mans 1200 quest

    Well after a few mishaps and a really good story with a trailer rental, we made it to a buddies work . His boss was super with me and basically let me have the place for a couple of days. My buddy gave me some direction and set me loose ....did i make mistakes ....yup 100%.....did I get dirt in my clear, you betcha , did I get one run...of course I did.....I'am I gonna get to learn how to color sand and polish ...duh......Did I get an education on how to make it better the next time for my truck and my Chevelle ,absolutely. My buddy spent about 20 mins wet sanding and polishing my hood just get me to relax( and nibbing) First time painting with waterborne paint and a few new things you can do different, and the very first time clearing

    Well the end is near. 2k on and blocking one more time. Sealer going on at the shop and then paint. I really thought this car was going to be easy for my first one, but it would appear that it has way more contours and body curves than I thought about.

    Well, I've made some more progress . The plan is to have it in a booth and painting it by the end of the month...( God I hope) Car is in poly primer and I'm just finishing off blocking and getting ready for 2k primer.

    The Engineered 1UZ V8 Datsun 620 Build

    I went by The Roadster Shop a couple of days ago to look at a possible frame for my car , and there was a little P/U tucked off to the side ....I knew who's it was right away.....I didn't get a chance to look at it close , but judging by all the work going on .....just flat out amazing .
