Honestly I hate doing body work :angry:
And I do what ever I can to avoid doing it, front fenders and hoods will always get replaced....lol

But you can't be a painter with out being able to know at least you're basics in body work.

When skim coating, I bring out as much as the dents that I can

make sure the panel is all well scuffed up and down to metal.
I like useing a 2 part polyester glazing puddy when skimming, it's got a nicer flow.

I scoop up a generous amount with my spreader and start applying it spreading it from front to back, then switching, back to front, until I have a nice even spread......let it cure, and block sand

Repeat if necessary



PS LOL @ at the koolaid link :biggrin:
