A new reason for buying bagged...hehe

Well, finally decided to do some body work on my truck, been needing it for a long time.. While taking a break waiting for some bondo to dry, I looked over and seen some empty bags from my coal and got an idea..... Any of you that have ever done patch work and wanted it to at least look half-way decent (its my haulin truck so not TOO worried about how it looks just as long as it passes state inspection) you know about overspray and needing to close in just the section your working on so as to not screw up the rest of it.. This MAY be about as redneck as it gets hehe

and p.s. no, this is not the finished body work.. lol still gotta take some sheet metal and form it to the wheel well, get it riveted on and bondo'd. Redneck engineering at its finest lol
