Here are the goodies we ordered from Summit Racing. The key components to a blocking job will be the blocks. Since the body has multiple curves and various flat panel sizes, we picked up a block assortment kit made by Dura-Block. The kit features a standard, 1/3, 2/3, full size, round, and scruff blocks. Most of the time you will want the block to stay rigid and flat, but there will be a few areas that will necessitate the need for a flexible block and this assortment will fill both of those needs. For the sanding duties, we grabbed a roll of 80-, 150- and 220-grit papers to stick on the blocks and a roll of 80-grit for the dual action sander (D/A). To fill the low spots, a can of Rage by Evercoat body filler will do the trick. This lightweight body filler has great spreading and sanding properties, thus eliminating the need for cheese grating or sanding with coarse papers. We also picked up a can of guide coat and a box of 3M grinding discs just in case we unearthed some bad rust.
