Back from the Blaster

I stopped in at Rainbow this morning, as they have received the car back from the blaster.  It's funny to see it as bare silver metal vs. silver paint - can't see much of a difference from a distance.

Everything went as expected at the blaster, except for one area.  Apparently the driver's side-rear quarter panel had some damage in the past.  They used the drill-a-hole-and-pull-out-with-sliding-weight strategy, which is normally fine.  The thing they didn't do was weld the holes shut after pulling the panel back out.  They just applied the Bondo over everything, leading to what you see below, where about half of the holes have been welded over.  The rest of the panels look great so we have a great body to start the blocking process.
