Hi Rich-  I had lost track of this thread, glad to see the progress.  Tough luck on the body, hope you get it back in paint soon.

Thanks for the "consoling" words everyone.  The paint is stripped and today I will fill in the dips with some bondo.  I'll do my best not to "oversand" this time.  

 

While the body was in the stripper I pulled out my "Nemesis" model that had given me nothing but trouble, and decided to finally "win the fight" and get it assembled.  It is a '57 Chevy model that has sat, almost completed, back in its box, for the past 6 or 7 years.  I'll get a thread going on it in Under Glass later today.

 

Anne, you cracked me up with your comment.

Just a quick update note.  I stripped the paint and filled in the dips in the fenders with bondo and sanded it all smooth and level.  Now we're getting snow again..!!  Worst case, I'll have to wait for the coming weekend to repaint it as we're supposed to be getting nice 50+ degree weather... YEAY..!!  

 

I  SO  want to finish up this model...!!!
