All the dents I fixed are virtually impossible to detect... the driver's door ... it looks good to 95% of the people who will see it. I missed a few dents on the roof (don't care) and a hand full of dings on the hood (eh...)
Overall, I must say I am extremely happy with the outcome. They even blacked out the radiator support, wheel wells, and anywhere else there was overspray. I didn't expect them to do it, so it's an added bonus!
Here's one shot... waiting on the rest to load onto my email from my phone. Sending it to facebook is by FAR the fastest way I have found to get the photos from my phone to the internet... but I don't want to load all the truck pics onto my fb page.

Wow looks great makes me want to go buy some sand paper!

wow, that looks awesome. With my Maaco paint job they told me there was no extra charge for the overspray (and where they didn't paint but should have)....
about the overalls.... that's about all that truck needs to be perfect

A few more photos I didn't get around to posting before...
Hood worked best by razor blade: That cowl panel was a royal pain! stripper, sandpaper, oops left it in the rain - ospho, more sandpaper, primer, sand, primer, sand, primer, "good enough" ...I haven't got an after pic yet.
1st phase of bondo on the driver's side:
2nd (or 3rd) coat of bondo on the driver's side: I didn't want to put it on too thick - so I had to do multiple coats. grrr, amateur!

Also, they detailed the glass. I had gotten some primer over spray on it, and was planning on spending some time with a new razor blade getting them cleaned up after I got the truck home. They did it for me.
... now I need to get off my butt (or onto a different website) and order the window fuzzies and some blue paint to finish doing the jams.... and paint the grill and headlight bezels... and... the list goes on. But the hard part is done!

About the spray can primer thing....I did the bodywork that way on my orange 59 chevy truck, I was driving it to college and work every day and I didn't have any spray equipment at all. I had a friend paint the truck over all that, he sprayed on some sealer and then the paint. 31 years later, it hasn't peeled anywhere. Just thought you might like the reassurance
