Thank you, I was very happy with how they turned out and I think when painted it will look very original
Thanks again

I used a level with a straight edge to help to find the center of the style line for laying out tape on the body line. When level, sliding the straight edge will leave a mark dead center of the body line. I'm sure there are many other ways of doing this but I found this work good for my old eyes ;-)
Thanks
Pat

Pat - what is the purpose of the tape on the style line? A marker for sanding?

Larry, Yes, the tape is used as a guide for block sanding as to keep a straight and true body line. After that top section is sanded I will tape just above the first tape line and then stand the next section.
Thanks
Pat

Very clever - I imagine this will make the style line quite sharp.

With the body lines taped I blocked sanded the top 1/3 and bottom 1/3 of the sides with 320 grit sand paper. Then using the 1st tape line as a guide, I ran tape above or below the first tape line so I could block sand the center section of the car. This creates straight but sharp body lines that need softened. After removing all the tape I went back over both sides with 400 grit sand paper softening the body lines.
600 grit paper is next one step away from sealer :-)
Thanks
Pat

When you move the tape from the bottom of the body line to the top of the line, do you put it on the exact line as before or a 1/16 higher? You mentioned "just above". I figure on the exact line would make it real sharp and leaving a space wouldnt really be sanded. Thanks!

The two tape lines touch. With all of the block sanding completed I removed all the tape and sanded the entire panel with 400 grit paper to soften the body lines
I hope this helps
Thanks
Pat
