    Filler, I'll second that.
    Tom, since you have expressed your love sanding, I think this is a job for you. Don't deny your essence.

    Thanks Ralph, LOL. I accidently deleted the photo after Chris sanded the hood. It had a big valley down the center. He likes to skim the entire vehicle then sand it. 95% of the filler ends up on the floor. But the end result is a laser straight body.

    Chris skimmed the sides, hood and radiator shell then sanded. Here they are in sandable primer. We are going to map out my side openings tomorrow and take apart the bed to have the same prep work done. He will block sand everything then before a primer/sealer.

    Looks great When sanding the skim coat. What grit does he finish down to before primer?

    Not Duraglass, that stuff is like concrete when dry. It is some sort of bond like stuff. I do not do bodywork so those questions are hard for me to answer correctly. Chris knows all that stuff.

    Stopped by Huegenics today. Chris has the whole front in sanding primer. We laid out a few ideas for the hood sides cut outs. Ended up liking the last one. Once cut out they get mesh on the inside and a nice thin aluminum strip on the outside. The passenger door is done sanding after skimming the drivers door is primed with sanding primer. Hope to have whole truck in sanding primer by next week. then block it out and sealer primer.

    Chris did the side panel cut outs. I really like them. Truck is coming along nicely. Very cold down here for Fl. In the 30's last few mornings. Brrrr!

    Tom,

    What are you doing with the Grill? Chrome, Powder Coat, Paint? Some other neato solution?

    I am just going to polish it the best I can myself. I like the brushed look myself.

    Chris was a busy guy yesterday. He got everything but the cab in sandable primer. Also test fitted the mesh in the hood sides. I am getting excited for sure.

    Chris has been putting in long hours on the cab. Here is 2 pics of cowl and roof. Black areas are high spots. These are after skimming with filler then sanded with 180. Once he is done it will get sand able primer like the rest of the 35 parts. I will going out of town for about 10 days so not sure if I will be able to post or not. Chris emails me these photos so maybe so. We are trying to finish 35 before the customer MK4 kit arrives in March.

    Chris has some parts in final prime. Cab should be in final prime by Saturday. Then it is time to let it all sit and gas off for a week. Then color!

    Chris finished up final sealing primer on the bed sides, roll pan and cab. Now we just wait a week for color. I really like how he finished up the back of the bed sides.

    I agree with the bed end treatment. Looks great. I plan something similar. They would look unfinished without something.

    Tom,

    Is your door panel arm rest from FFR or is that a different piece? I like the one you have a lot better than the one that came with my 33HR kit.

    Thanks,

    Tom the Hot Rod Truck looks great just like everything else you build. This is the third build I have followed you on and I have enjoyed very much. I am like yourself there is not much I don't get into. I like to see how you come up with ideas to fix things it always works out in the end. I cant wait to see your truck in final paint I know you want that as well. I just hope when I start mine it will come out as good as yours. Just as soon as the doctor tells me im ok I will order mine I want to build the 33 and then I hope the 35. Have a good day Tom I enjoy your post

    I love those cut outs on the side panels, I want to do a similar thing on my project. I was thinking one big cut out and then some kind of mesh behind it. What are you using behind the cut outs? is that just expanded steel? What kind of finish for them? chrome?
