Well, I have seen a lot of people asking how to use bondo, so here's a tutorial.
Alright, well since I had to re-bondo the top, I figured I should take some pictures of the bondo process and explain it best I can.
First off the supplies needed:
Cream Hardener (should come with bondo)
Small Acrylic Sheet
Tool to Open a Paint Can
(all seen below)
First thing you want to do is remove any dust from the place you are filling. You do this by using a Tac Cloth. They are very cheap and can be found anywhere sanding supplies are sold. Once it's clean, set your victim on a level surface.
Now it's time to mix up the bondo!
Take your tool/screw driver and open the bondo can. Yes, it's going to be a light gray color. At this time it's OK to leave it open for a minute or two while getting your mixing sheet/acrylic sheet and putty knife ready.
Once it's opened, make a rough guess on how much you will need. Just remember: try not to be short. It's better to have a little too much than not enough. Scoop the desired amount onto your mixing board (my acrylic sheet).
Once you have the right amount spread out, take the cream hardener and squirt a small amount onto the gray bondo.
Now it's time to mix it up; it should be a redish/pinkish color. If it seems too gray then add a little more. Once this is mixed you only have about 2-4 minutes of spread time.
Spread desired amount onto the needed area. Try to blend a little, too; make as thick as you want.
Bondo takes only 30-45 minutes to dry if it's 1/2 inch thick. So before you go sanding, make sure you wait at least 30 minutes. Then sand like you normally would.
Hope this was helpful; just remember to be confident! It's easy!
Till next time.
