Re: [T3] Body Work Cont.



TravisC=> is there anything I should consider before I round up the 
       => dough 

Do some practicing first -- get some panels from the junk yard and some 
body tools from Harbor Freight or someplace, and learn to dolly out 
dents, learn how the hammers work, try some torch shrinking, like that. 
(Remember that old VW metal will be substantially thicker than that from 
modern cars.) Assuming all that goes well, do a real careful evaluation 
of how much time all the prep and sanding will take, then at least 
8!ot, and consider whether you've got the time and sticktoitiveness 
to follow through. In figuring the cost, price the pro materials from 
the auto paint supplier rather than the Bondo crap at Wal-Mart.
