I had a couple of dings and dents in the DC hood, and decided to break bad on my first grade body repair skills. As Im going to tell you I dont have a college grade skills with this. Through trial and error, and a whole Lotta error, I was finally able to lay my last coat of glaze over my Z grip body filler. We will block sand this this afternoon and hopefully prime tomorrow, and paint on Monday,Cheers! CM

She's gonna be prettier than a Jersey heifer in a clover pasture when you get done. Don

Will that stuff be flexible when done or will you have to be careful not to flex the hood when installing and removing? I had considered doing that in the past but always worried it would just crack or fall off.

What I did was massaged the metal with the pointy end of a body hammer until the hood would not pop in either direction. Then I applied the filler. cm
