Damn Straight

Okay, this is the second to last post before the end of the year. Filler continues to be applied and sanded away on the van. It’s a ridiculously tedious process, but it’s also an art form. I would say I don’t have a good eye for it, but eyes have nothing to do with it. It’s tactile. In the photos above, the surface looks like wood grain – little contour lines.

Honestly, looking at the original surface it looked good enough to me with the exception of a few places, but Aaron insisted there was a need for this effort. The result is appreciable. Everything is perfectly straight now, literally microns. The black and white "front-on photo" above was taken with my phone. I used it to compare what exists today with what existed almost exactly 4 years ago (in the colour photo). Pretty amazing change.
