Yesterdays photo was a real rainbow of color. It is now in 2k primer. Finished sanding, touched up the epoxy primer, followed by the 2k primer. Oh and I recovered a couple bucks selling the ¾ ton running boards. I should have asked more after I researched how rare they are, next time. A pretty good day!
Just a note for those who are seeing this on Google+ or Facebook I don’t guarantee that it will alway be there. For now the wordpress is connected to the social media sites but I’m not a big fan of Facebook so I put up as little information as possible. The build blog can alway be reached at:

I did a good cleaning of my spray gun and replaced gaskets.
I started sanding, it really needs to set a day or two more as it was clogging the sandpaper way too quickly.
Ok, sand and repeat. I sanded the filler primer and exposed too much bare metal. Worse than that I missed a huge crease where the door was opened too far at one time. Very typical on old cars, my 51 Willys had the same damage and has it again.
At bit more filler takes care of that. A bit more touch up here and there and more epoxy primer followed by filler primer. Sprayed the fender too because I knew I would have extra mixed. It is not really ready but enough along to spray it anyway. Better than wasting expensive product.
I painted the inside behind the seats section of the cab today. Not perfect but does it need to be?
No more bare metal. The entire cab is into primer or paint.
Another day of preparation and maybe ½ done.
The whole day spent with filler. I would switch back and forth between the cowl and fender while the filler would set on the other piece. Lots of filler and lots of sanding and still not done.
