Glazed Like a Doughnut!

    A couple more hours of progress ....

    I started out pecking high spots on Friday. Flaws are easy to spot with my primer coat acting as a guide coat! I pretty much just go through and check out all of the little metal spots and if they feel high I tap them down. And there are a bunch of them! I had to stay on the driver side since the other side was against the wall.

    In the first photo you can see what I am referring to. This fender has not been glazed yet. The high spots are the dark spots you see.

You can also clearly see them on the cab in this picture ...

    Once I got the hammering out of the way I started laying on some glaze. I have had my glaze for a while and the garage temper has since fluctuated from very hot to down right cold. This has caused my glaze to be to thick. I had a hard time working with it but I did manage to get a little on. I'll have to pick up some fresh before I continue.

I told you this stuff was gonna be boring LOL ......

    I started the fender and put another coat on the  other areas with the second batch ...

320 grit Done - Now to Spot and Glaze

    Got the majority or the truck sanded with 320 grit. Now to start looking for the blemishes and start fixing them. Some are obvious, some not so much.

All wiped down after a trip around the block. It started to rain while I was out. Fun jsut the same.
