    attach it to your suit at the lowest point and to your belt on the upper edges... or do like I am going to and attach the whole thing directly to your suit

    i put industrial strength velco on the cod belt and butt belt works perfect. just attach one side put it around and fasten the other side.

    So you're just making it tight enough to fit around you without falling down? That seems simple enough. Thanks.

    Haha ya im using a sander. The box said it was called a detail sander. I keep using the smallest grit that came with it. The domes getting smooth but theres tons of little dents everywhere! not sure what to do. I know if i add more bondo ill just sand it again and it will look exactly the same! Kinda wishing i used something else to make it

    like grit or size? The size and shape is exact to that of an iron. You know like the iron that you iron your clothes with (might have spelt that wrong) but ya the size of a normal ironing iron

    the smaller the number, the more it eats off your surface, work your way up to number, then use spot filler to fill the little pin holes, then hand sand at a high grit 1000+ wet sand.

    Spot filler is premixed toothpaste consistancy, self curing and designed to be put in THIN layers like 1/16 to 1/8", you'll sand it with a fine grade sandpaper or you'll just remove it all and it wont fill the little holes.

    Here's a pic, see the red stuff.

    Here's the 405th tut video:

    Now don't you go using THAT MUCH HARDENER, he used too much which makes it dry waaay too fast, but worse, it makes the bucket way too brittle. It's better to use a little hardener and wait a little/lot longer for it to harden, but it will be stronger.
