    Mix it porperly, then shlop it on with a bondo spreader, smooth as best you can to begin with, then let it dry for a few hours, then mask up and sand. and sand and sand and sand and sand... then another layer and sand and sand and sand and sand etc etc etc. you get the gist.

    As a life long construction worker I hear you there! The shirt method has saved my butt so many times in attics, crawlspaces, etc.

    That is about it...but actually, if you over mix the hardener slightly you can get it to dry in about 15 minutes. Then for the sand, sand, sand...

    And yes, wear a mask!!! I didnt at first, and the cough lasted almost a month...

    I mix between 10-20% over the stated ratios (more hardener, that is). so it dries faster.

    Just enough to get it even with the fangs and the earcaps...Take the front edge of the earcaps and trace a lind to the edge of the fang, and that is your cut line.

    Btw, REALLY good looking dome!!! Great job on that!!!
