The area you have taped off should just go flat black anyway. Looking GREAT!
Had to get this on before the temperature gets out of control.
Can't wait to hear your thoughts after the hood is installed.
Not sure if he'll even be able too now that's it's open from the louvres.
I was wondering about that....
There is always a compromise. Hopefully my stack of dynamat and hoodliner is enough to offset.
The truck is damned loud over 2k anyway.
Public Service Announcement:
Always use a fresh can of filler.
My Evercoat Rage 105 was a little over a year and a half old, and wouldn't set up; not even overnight. Scraping it all off now, and heading to the paint supply shop in the morning for a new can.
Ugh, hate when you have to do work twice plus cleaning up the first problem.
Same here. I've moved from anger and frustration to acceptance.
The steps are working then
Like has been said on CK5 before, you have to embrace the suck
New gallon of Evercoat Gold 112 in the shop. My 3M strip disc made short work of the doughy filler, and the rest I did by hand with 120 grit on a block.

I've got to get through the prototype unscathed, first!
No matter how much I think I've controlled heat or how well the panel has responded to bumping, a skim of filler quickly shows me what's up.
Aside from the old and inaccessible hail dents (softball projectiles), nothing there is thicker than 1/16". I'm pleased so far, but still have 16 ways I'd do it better next time.
One more skim of Evercoat, and then I'm on to a glaze and guide coat. Oh, and tons of blocking.
Guide coat happy hour:
I see a low spot.
Quick run to the paint shop for glaze and a wax and grease remover. Still not used to seeing this:
I hear that's how all the cool kids in Michigan do it.
