I started on my top dash this week as well as the back wall plastic and the pillars. I've been taking some pics along the way.


Looks good huh? :crazy:

Half way through with the 120!



Pillars


Finished with the 120!

Got a little touching up to do.




Instead of hand sanding that little line on the side I put some bondo on it.



Sanded down

My very first fiberglass job! I fiberglassed over the childseat thing holes on the back wall plastic.




I should be through with by next week sometime and then I can get it to my painter. If I can find somebody that can airbrush I'm going to get some ghost flames on the dash. Still not sure yet though.

Yep using a DA sander for everything. It will vibrate your hand to shit though! I'm painting everything the same as the exterior.

I started with 120 grit and some 80 too! For some bad areas! But I sanded everything with the 120 and then went to 220 and then 220 wet. Next week I'll be using 600 and then 600 wet.

You wish!! Nah I'd help ya out if you lived closer! :shake: A friend of mine is going to get a new Avalance pretty soon with the body molding and wants me to help him sand all that shit! That'll be a job and a half! But I'd rather do big flat parts than something with lots of nooks and corners.
