I see your 3 gal. of body filler and raise you some body filler sculpted rockers...

Not for nothing do you feel no responsibility to expose who did this? I couldn't sleep at night knowing that other people are getting this done to there cars.

I think I would take it to a media blaster and have the whole car stripped first , just to see what else is hiding. it's only metal and can be repaired.

Good luck

The jury is going nuts, must know what is in the box.

You must have over a hundred hours in metalwork already. Great work! Where on earth does one get the time.
