Wow what do you do in your spare time? Kinda understand except the paint I don’t think I can go there. Great job. Where are you located in Springtown? I am just down the road in Azle.

Razor to original paint then sand to bare metal. Most of this is coming off easy because its so thick and wasnt prepped right then around huck bolts and hard to get corners airplane paint stripper. I have two small dents to pull and bondo then to a apoxy primer sealer.
