We have been commissioned to do the bodywork on a Ford F1 truck. The original body was in such poor condition that we sourced a better example for us to start with. The client is looking for a cruiser with modernized styling. We discussed a few options with him and have begun work on the truck. This is going to be a fun project.
The truck was first disassembled and the paint removal began.
Multiple layers of paint and primer were discovered as we started to strip paint. Bondo was prevalent – as would be expected from a 70 yr old truck.
Bondo is getting removed from any panels it was found on. Jesus will use hammer and dolly techniques along with a few other tricks to beat the dents into submission.
More damage and bondo is showing up as we remove the paint. The truck is old so we know we have some work to do!
