    I hate Bondo

    Ok so i started bondoing my fiberglass sub enclosure so i can paint.... well i musta been real tired or too anzious to get started, because almost 50% of my first layer of bondo didnt mix with hardener or something, so i have a somewhat wet baselayer in some parts and it messing the whole bondo job up...

    ive tried smearing some hardener into some of the set spots, but that didnt help because i found they were larger wet spots than i though, some right now im in the process of scraping out any wet spot i can find, then filling it with some fiverglass resin, then ill bondo over top of that...

    anyone think using the resin will actually work? or anydifferent ideas of fixing this?

    haha ...sorry that sucks - but I've been there with fiberglass and it blows. As for bondo get the true bondo spreaders and match the mix to the color of the spreader - works like a champ.

    You can try using MEKP hardener that's used for resins. It can't really mix with bondo which is why it's not used, but the principle is still the same - it'll create heat to harden the bondo spread.

    You might just want to scrape off all the unmixed portion and reapply a good layer. That's what I would do - otherwise who knows how well this ghetto mix will cure.
