Fill her up

With the Type 2 back on the drive all I have to do is blend in the new repair panels. I’m going to try and learn my mistakes and take some time to do the job properly.

First up I’ve ladled some Isopon onto the affected areas. This was left to dry overnight and then sanded back with a power sander. Rushing to get the job done, resulting in sanding the filler before it is dry has hampered previous efforts. The filler sticks to the sandpaper and the tears, leaving holes in the surface.

Never again. While it’s going to take a long while to finish, I want top quality results. In theory car bodywork requires more patience than skill, let’s hope the books that tell me this are right.
