    to get a fairly smooth transition, you can place plastic wrap over the bondo and mold to shape with your hands it once it begins to harden a little. then when it's fully cures, just peel it off. this works great with bondo glass, bondo hair, all that stuff, and you don't get it all over your hands. you'll still have to sand, but you get the initial shape pretty close to what your looking for.

    man, this thread is already a classic

    i would think the plastic wrap would be a pain to sand away once it hardens.....if it ever does.

    to the OP, its things like this that contribute to all of those hidden costs of a project like this, don't give up

    I personally like the fiberglass jelly they sell at walmart. Its very easy to work with......but when you get to the sanding part, its like sanding a rock
