I now have all the body panels in primer. The rubber nose will need another coat of primer. The first round of blocking should start next week.

Curious as to how many hours it took to get it that straight?

Thank you for all the comments. It's really a labor of love. For me the more I do it the easier it seems. Each fender has about 8 hours of rework. The fender edge along the door needed to be reformed. I drilled out all the spot welds releaf cut the edges and pulled it out to match the door radious. Clamp and reweld. The front lip that comes to the nose was welded wrong to high and to wide. I had to drill the spot welds out and pull the fender down and in then reweld. You would think for a 400 dollar repop fender you wouldn't have to rework it but you do. I use a ruler straight edge on end to make sure all the panels line up. Lots of blocking but the end result speaks for itself.

First round of blocking the car completed. Now the tedious task of masking everything off. This is the second coat of high build.

Hey Jason, I am really loving this build. How much outsourcing do you do with your projects? Do you have another shop do your paint work?
