June 25, 2005hey, has anyone done a set of tail light filler panels that can give some advice. i've got some metal filler panels from grant customs the ones that have the body lines top and bottom on them. i'm wondering about how to go about tacking them one and still keeping the body lines.thanks,mike

June 28, 2005Just line up the body lines with the filler plates with the lines on the truck and tack away one spot at a time working opposite sides back and forth slowly so you dont over heat the metal and warp it then go back and grind it smooth you might need to smooth it out a little with filler but you should get most of it with welding and grinding.
April 26, 2007use a file on the body lines. if u use a grinder u might make grooves in the metal thats not ur filler plate. it will take longer but u will also have less body filler , which is better.
