19-Dec-07 Finishing Behind the Seats Part 3

Shade Tree Mechanic

ImageAfter it hardened, it was removed from the car. You can see all the paper and crap still attached to it.
ImageThe piece is thin enough to cut with a sheet metal sheers.
ImageAt this point its rough but close enough to reinstall in the car to check the fit before going too much further.
ImageIt fit like a glove so a coat of kitty hair body filler was applied to the entire face of the piece to fill in any low spots. I thought since the piece is kind of flexible, I’d be best to start with strands for extra strength.
ImageI took it out in the backyard to work on it. I'm a shade tree mechanic when the weather is right.
ImageA final skim coat of lightweight filler was applied and sanded smooth.
