I cut the casting gates off the tail lights so I could check the fit. They are good so I rough ground the welds and let them set for now. I need to finish the bumper first.

I did the first of many rounds of grinding on the bumper. I knocked the welds down with 40 grit discs and bumped the low spots up. It still looks like dog meat but it's getting there.
There wasn't much planishing to do, it was pretty smooth already.. Next step is to fill in a few low spots (circled) with weld and knock those down, then another round of grinding with 80 grit, and on, and on...

Set a Goal So Big That You Can't Achieve It Until You Grow Into The Person That Can.
