    Did I get the right kind of bondo?

    Hi,
    I'm planning to start my screen fabrication and would like to get your opinion if I got the right material. I'm no expert with working with bondo but hopefully with the aid of the stuff I read and seen in the forum I'll be able to produce something good looking.

    Thanks!

    I don't have too many choices. This industry is very lacking here.
    There was just one other material at the store. I can't remember the brand name (I can call them tomorrow and check) but the guy there told me it might break and that bondo is stronger.

    Do you have any suggestions and warnings of how to use this particular material well? I obviously want this to look OEM and smooth.

    much eassier to describe, the industry is not lacking there os tons of premium body fillers out there but jus not at your local hardware store.

    It just requires more work to do it correctly, I suppose it is alright for one timers, but I do this as a pernmament side job so I have all the best materials

    One of the easiest secrets to getting a good result is starting with good materials. Use what the guys with the sweetest results use. When Brian (Nexson) says "Use Rage products", that's a good direction for us to go. If we use lesser products, we get lesser results, or we spend more time making up for them.

    If just enough is really good, then too much ought to be perfect.

    bond makes a premium product and when mixed it is blue not pink and it sands like butter!! it is light weight filler i think it is called bond ultimate or ultra
    body shops use this type for feathering as it blends well. i used this in my 2007 tundra to get a gloss black finish. if you dont know, black shows all flaws and is very hard to pull off !

    I would not use the normal bondo. I have finally made the perfect shape with it and I cant get these tiny holes out of the surface. I have tried filling them in and resanding and it just doesnt work. I have heard that Bondo Gold does work a lot better though and am looking into purchasing some myself.
