DIY Bodywork means lots of sanding

I've spent a lot time aligning body parts and now I'm skim coating with filler over epoxy primer and sanding most of it off!

I'm not a pro, just an average do it yourselfer. Please have a look at the video and feel free to give some constructive pointers! ( YouTube link at very bottom of this post)

Tperazzo,

"I'm not a pro, just an average do it yourselfer."

Whatever... you have super skills. You are lucky you are not within slapping distance! I'm still staring at some metal work mentally preparing for it, knowing that you busted it out in 1/8 of the time it will take me.

I'm sure your painting and bodywork videos will be great.

Ha ha, I'm running out of talent fast when it comes to paintwork. Several people are guiding me along thankfully, many of which are on YouTube. There are a lot of differing opinions on how to get 'er done so I'm trying to make sense of it all.

When it comes to metal work I'm much more confident and would be happy to help, just ask!
