Thanks for the comments guys....John, usually I work with the Squadron green putty, hardens well overnight. I do have some automotive filler I use sometimes. I use all kinds of sanding sticks, files and different grit sandpaper depending on what needs to be done, roughing or finishing. Hope that helps.

Posting couple updated pix. First shot shows .25 wide filler glued in widening the body. Second shot shows reshaped front wheel openings, front and rear are only roughed in for now. Third is B4 and aft. Thanks for looking!!

Am really impressed by this build Jeff, really like the way the body is shaping up, from the wheelwell work to th side skirts to the front airdam, it all looks great. (if you have any plans on making any resin copies, let me know, wouldn't mind having one!)

Hey all, not a lot of progress last 2 days, but some...couple things done that were a must. Some areas have been smoothed over, like the rear bumper mounts and the side vents filled and smoothed. Also, added plastic to area where I added front extension and smoothed over. Threw some putty on it and will smooth over some more. Next is to finish fenderwells, make some cool bumpers and make small details for frt air dam and side skirting. Thanks for looking.

Tyrone, Raul and Richard...thanks for the comments.
John, thanks man...means a lot coming from the true master!!

This is just plain sick. Love all of the body mods going on here and every new update just makes it more unbelievable. I'm definately dialed into this one.

The work you do is amazing, Jeff. I'm mesmerized by the vision you have for transforming a stock, ho-hum-looking body into an automotive drag racing work of art...

Thanks for the comments guys, glad your enjoying this process. I've been slinging a little more putty and smoothing over some plastic, I really enjoy doing this kinda stuff. Thanks for looking.

More frt bumper work and hood start...

More body smoothing, almost becoming slick, good bit more to go...

Frt bumper smoothing, little bit more shaping and smoothing to go, shouldn't take a lot more to finish this. Then I will make the rears.
