Ok, Bling Bling Crew, here is the 411 on what has been going on with my car..

Well, here are some pics..
Before Any Work






Then after 2 days of sanding, and using glaze, It has turned out like this


I am getting my new Headlight on Friday, then I will be back out on the streets..

BTW, the people that I hit, they havent put in a claim to my insurance co. YET...
Hopefully they saw the damage, and said "Sppft, there is no damage" and then the guy driving turned to the fat lady and said "and shut up about your neck and back"


What y'all think?

I am assuming these are new accident pics, cause if I recall you wrecked the other one pretty badly.

It looks good so far.

Do you have collision on your insurance?

Not bad at all FatTortoise. You are saving a ton in insurance by not claiming it. For something that simple it is worth doing yourself. I am assuming you are going to have it painted professionally though. And what no fog light inserts yet?

Keep up the good work and it will look good as new. If you deside to total the car, I want your system

Looking good! You should work on getting the body shop supply house to give you a frequent customer discount.

I got the hood out by bending it, then using a odd tool that uses a weight to bang the dent out

FYI, it doesnt really work too well, plus, you have to drill holes where the dents are..

Most of it my Father showed me how to do it, well, he showed me on his 1964 Chevy. Then I just kinda remembered what he showed me, and did it on my car
