Once I got the car down to bare metal and hammered as straight as possible, it was time to add thin layers of filler to take care of any remaining low spots. Here's July 26th, 2006 after another 9 hr day...I'm getting the car flat and smooth before I apply any primer. Here's me after a shower.

Once all of the welding was done I could put the car back on the ground. It had been up on jack stands for about 7 months!
