I finally found some time to work on my truck again! got the doors and fenders on... it may not look like much, but it was an all day event trying to get all 4 doors and fenders aligned. i need to clean the truck up, but after i finish buttoning some things up in the morning, im going to start wet sanding!!!

i wouldnt recommend wet sanding something if you have never done it. i use 1500-2000 grit paper. it takes a lot of work to get all of the orange peel out and you can sand through the clear easily. since i painted the stripes under the clear, there is a little bit of a tape line taht i want to get out as well. I knew i was going to do all of this when i painted the truck, so i made sure i sprayed enough clear on it to work with.
