You guessed it, more sanding

Passenger side, trunk, and roof block sanded to 180 grit. Overall, it is looking pretty good--only a few high/low spots. Next up? That really, really big hood.

Update: I felt like finishing up the first pass, so I blocked out the hood:

The black areas are low spots--but they aren't very low. Since I'm going back over it with 220 grit before adding a couple coats of primer-filler, I decided to leave a little more to paint to remove.

Left Front Fender done

After much tapping, pushing, and prodding (and a great deal of sanding),  the style line in the front fender is where it should be. Hard to see in this light, and the primer is very thin, but I'm pretty happy with it. I'll build up several thin layers of primer over the next few days and then give it a final sanding.

I took this picture right before rolling it out of the garage and starting it up for the first time in several months. She fired right up, and I let her get nice and warm before driving her back in the garage. This also gave me a chance to sweep up the garage; it was really dusty.

Next up? You guessed it, more sanding. I did manage to get a large portion of the right hand side sanded this weekend as well, and I'm happy to say there were no surprises like I found on the left hand side. Fingers-crossed the rest of the panels will be in the same shape.
