    well, in case your not being sarcastic....bondo, bondo hair, bondo glass...all that stuff is hardened chemically, not by air. putting plastic wrap over it doesn't increase curing time at all. and it peels right off after the bondo cures. then you sand

    I think the dash is saveable. I'd just fill the holes, a nice wetsanding, primer, paint and your done.

    One thing you might want to try and experiment with is raycrete

    I love the stuff. It's non-toxic, sticks to about anything and has a nice working time. It thickens up instead of just turning hard all of a sudden. It's very easy to sand and shape the first 10 hours or so. At first, like soap, later like wood. I made my "mouse shifter" out of it, which basically had to be whiittled and sanded to get the right shape.

    Also used it to mount my lcd in my double din and my Sirius Radio in the clockpod.

    Only ***** is painting it. I found a good primer for it (Transtar 2in1 flexible primer).

    It's non-toxic to boot and cleans up with lemon juice. I just don't have the knack for glass (not enough experience) and I really hate bondo. Always have such a hard time getting rid of the little pits that come up while sanding. It can also be colored with concrete colorant.

    Another problem is I live in an apartment, so glassing/bondo is a PITA.





    (This was halfway through, I put more in there)

    my concern with just filling the holes in the dash is the amount of work, the amount of sanding and the amount of holes.

    No doubt, you will get cracking on one of those many holes.

    You mean were you fill it or radiating out of the holes like a stress crack?

    I think bondo wouldn't last too long, but like I said, I've had great luck with the raycrete stuff. And it's so damn easy to sand at first.

    As far as the wetsanding, etc, you're talking to someone who did his dash like 5 times trying to get it just perfect and probably #6 coming up soon
