I did the final sanding on the M gas tank to be sure I did have any dings or dents that seem to show up after final painting.I lightly sprayed some black paint on the tank then resanded if any black is still there you know it is a low spot then primed again. Heres some pictures of before and after.

I had a couple of dents in the side that I got smoothed out. Sorry thought these pictures showed them :roll: Didn't realize it till today.

JB weld is hard to sand isn't it? I just always used bondo.
