Build update - front clip primered!!

After what seems like a lifetime of body prep I finally got the first three coats of high build primer on the front clip. A huge milestone for me!!

Looks like you spent some quality time with the blocks and paper prior to spraying the clip. Should make the final blocking much easier. I find that I get a bit sad when the primer goes on because it hides all the fine work that went into getting the panels straight. Good job!

​​​​​​​i found I got a bit happy when the primer went on because it hid all the poor work that went into getting the panels kinda straight.

Yup, one piece good or bad!! I prefer to have the smooth lines rather the the jointed panels, just my preference.

Very nicely done it looks like it came off the line like that. Now you will have to keep answering the question that is sure to come up "is it Fiberglass?", with No just a lot of hard work. Congrats on a beautiful result.
