    The reason the front sits high is because when they originally made the kits they replicated how the real 68s sat a little higher in the front. So you didn't do anything wrong its just the kit. Great looking build by the way.

    I have a 78 c20 that I'm in the middle of restoring now and I'm further on the model than the actual truck. Lol

    Strip all of it off. Then scuff with 80 grit paper. Wash with soap and water them with a wax and grease remover. Allow this plenty of time to dry. Apply a body filler. Not glazing putty. allow plenty of time to dry. sand starting at 180 and work you're way to 1000. Write off and apply glazing putty only if pinholes are there. Then sand out again.

    Its called instacure+ gap filling. As long as you let it dry fully it sands great and lasts a long time

    Don't use putty. Use super glue. It sands better and lasts longer.

    I use an airbrush every now and then but I prefer rattle cans. I've just never seen anything like this. Oh well. I'll just keep redoing till I'm happy with it.

    They don't show till the paint settles and us close to dry. I've sprayed these three bodys over a period of 2 weeks. And my area is clean and the bodys are cleaned and prepped before I spray them.
