Low spots skim coated and guide coated.
There's a slight high spot in the middle; the rings of the layers of primer are visible around it. Pretty easy to see how the high build primer helps to level out imperfections.
Top of cowl blocked with 60 grit. There's a few low spots that'll need to be fixed.
Sanded flat with 60 grit, guide coated to show the heavy scratches when I reblock it with smoother sandpaper. Primer will shrink when the solvents evaporate out and will cause the surface of the primer sink down into the deep sanding scratches. That
Guide coated and beggining to block the panels flat. Tape is to protect the seam from unwanted shaping by the edge of the sanding block.
Reflection looks fairly straight.
Front of the cab in high build primer,3 coats of Slick Sand.
Test fitting, the gaps still need some work to tighten them up.
Also welded some pins on the rear to pull the upper panel out flush with the lower panel.
Used the stud welder to make hooks that I can pull the rear cab panel gap closed when we glue the seam in place for the final time.
Coated with rust inhibiting paint.
Welds ground down smooth. Its not going to show but grinding the welds makes sure the paint covers the panel completely.
