Here's a little project I've been working on to break up the applying of body filler and sanding.
Its the catch for the rear hatch, it always looked unfinished to me both ends are open, so here's is what I'm doing.

Clean up the ends. they had a curve at each end








Cut a piece of plate to fill in and weld up, grind it flush, I'm going to add this part to the list of the parts going to the powder coater

[/quote]Then on a patch this size I used some 2" wide tape to cover the hole, (now just paint and your done) just kidding....lol[quote]

Love it!!!

Why don't you get the cheap powder coating kit from harbor frieght (to be a cheap powder coating kit it's better then the eastwoods powder coating gun. I powder coated alittle and there's really nothing to it except your parts has to be clean and no oil or grease residue, and you can use a regular house oven ''BUT IT CAN NO LONGER BE USED FOR ANYTHING ELSE!!"

The way I see it as good as the work you do, you would and could do just as good or better then any one else.

I would like to have my own powder coating set up, I do prefer to do all my own work, but I just don't have the room for any more equipment right now.

I have a buddy that owns a powder coating company, so I have the hook up on it for now cheers

Appreciate your work!

Had a little body work to do on the inside of the hatch from all the welding I had done.

A little filler




Primer



Painted with semi gloss black.



There was some of the original strips under the hood scoop so I sanded them off, it was very time consuming, clogged up the sand paper a lot.



Used fiberglass reinforced body filler on the out side of the hatch for extra strength.



My wife must have shot this pic, when I was busy with what seems to be my life lately Block sanding this car...



All most there.





There. primer surfacer





All right more block sanding.

Looks great!!!! What kind of primer did you use on the back side of the hatch? It looks so smooth like it was sprayed from a gun.

I used spray can primer and paint on the in side of the hatch, to many little angles to try and sand around to go the other way.

Not in the plans for now, it will only be about a low 13.00 sec to hi 12 sec car, so the 8" is more than stout enough for that. bigger brakes would be nice since its a bracket car, but we will see how it works first, before we change anything.

We are looking at 2" drop spindle's, hot rods need to be low..... Cool
