Does anyone have pictures or video that demonstrates this technique? I'm a visual learner, and think I get it, but a couple of pics would be nice.

This is for body filler, which is probably obvious.

Kevin,
Here is a pic of my passenger side fender right after pulling a hacksaw blade over the rage. I used the hacksaw blade twice on each side with block sanding between applications. Just try to match the curve of the blade with the radius of the fiberglass. You don't a lot of time to work with the rage before it starts setting up. You'll get the hang of it.



Same fender after paint

You can also use a wide plastic spreader - Just bend the spreader in the middle to create an arch. Use a long board to sand it out with some 80 grit, and you will be left with a nice curve.

Thanks guys! That's what I was thinking, just wanted to be sure. I've got some big plastic spreaders too, so I'll play around with blades and spreaders and see what I get. Lord knows I'll have plenty of opportunity to practice my Rage skills. ;->
