    Hi mate

    You want Isopon P38 its as close as you'll find over here, I use it all the time and its great stuff, a few tips, use it in a well ventilated area as it stinks and the fumes are dangerous! Mix only a small amount at a time otherwise you may find yourself wasting a load, you only have a few minutes to work with the filler once its mixed, it will start curing quickly

    They're all pretty much the same, just pop into 'Halfords' and you'll find a few different makes available.

    Isopon38 only comes in small jars though.
    look around on the same section for U-pol; same stuff from the same company, mixed in same ratio, but its like 14squid for 2L!!! Always pick the easysand stuff.

    tried puttin link - but doesnt work. Look up halfords site under body filler. U-pol comes in 2 big pots - one is abt 3L and the other 2L. I used to buy small pots; buts this stuff if just too useful!!

    beware the smell though when using.

    theres only 1 type of isopon38; diff volumes though. dont get ISOPON40 though!!

    Nate

    sorry, i really don't want to take away from the heart of this thread but I can't make my own threads yet. What kinda of bondo should I buy in the US? I've never actually bought my own...always just had some and I don't know which is the best and how much that stuff costs. I just need enough for a helmet and some parts of the armor, probably a jet pack too. If you have any suggestions reply here or PM me. (pm'ing is best) Thanks for any help
