You've really done a fantastic job, man, that rear end looks as good as factory.
Another great installment in your series.

I watched your last video but the speakers on my computer are not very good (or it's my ears that are not very good). What was the product you used to fill in the pinholes in your sheet metal exterior.

Is this what I would have called "lacquer putty" 35 years ago when I did bodywork? It sure looks like it.

Yep....I believe it's pretty much the same stuff. Works great for very small pinholes, but anything much larger, it tends to shrink up a bit.

I'm brain storming on different types of insulation to purchase for Transcendence. I originally was considering spray foam, but upon further research, I decided to go another route. I'm considering using 2" polystyrene rigid foam insulation with an R8 value. For those of you that have insulated this way.....How many sheets did it take to do ceiling, floor and walls? What are your thoughts on this?

Here's a link to what I'm thinking about......

IDK but rigid foam is what I've been thinking of using, too.
