Well she was supposedly a great truck and ready for paint. When everything else was done we checked the body. Truck is straight but had up to 10mm filler on most parts of the body. She has spent 4 weeks in filing. Now she is bare metal and straight as an arrow with no plaster all over her...:
Now she is ready for paint....

Well done, I had the same with my 58 regarding liberal amounts of body filler previously applied :roll:
Keen to see your end result, good luck.
