Second coat of primer on outside of fairbody.  Huge difference in the amount of color showing through. I have some annoying little bits that need fairing.  Some weave less full than what’s next to it. 
  I noticed the 4” mohair rollers seem to work better if you change them out frequently.  Better more even coverage.  And they won’t shed.

Those are great close-ups ... very helpful, showing what you can see if you're actually there :D

I blocked one side of the boat yesterday.  I used 80 grit and will chase that with 150.  The 150 is just not sufficient to cut the primer in my opinion. 
   First pic I started and forgot the guide coat.  You can see how much more primer is removed with guide coat
   Second pic illustrates how little guide coat it takes to get it to work. I sanded through the primer a bunch and still have a lot of lows to fill

Looking good! I don't envy you, that part sucks haha... So much sanding... Feels good when it finally all comes together though.
