    Will do...give me a little time to get some pics and such...then I'll have a simple "how-to" for bondoing.

    Re: Starting my first Mando today

    The drying time or the entire helmet bondoing process?

    Drying time: depends on the amount of hardener: I can get it to dry anywhere from 2 to 10 minutes

    Whole process: I dont know...takes a while...but if you do nice, even coats now, while that may take longer than just globbing it on, it save far more time later when you have to sand.

    Re: Starting my first Mando today

    Ok i just spent an hour applying it (its dark now and im not completely down so i will finish tomorrow )

    Just a few things i would like to point out
    one, its really hard to apply it because the paper is so bendy (duh!)
    two, im almost out of the hardning paste so i dont know what to do there
    and three, IT SMELLS TERRIBLE

    just felt like saying those three things
