Bondo Alternative????


Newbie here with more questions:eek: I am wondering if any of you have found a bondo alternative. I am having a heck of a time working with the stuff. perhaps its my inexperience, no, I am sure it is my inexperience, but I am wondering if there might be a better product out there? Let me know if you can. Thanks!:D

I was attempting to use it on this "first" attempt at a jet pack. I had read a few threads about using bondo to fill in the gaps. I was hoping it would help smooth out the spaces before painting.

what are you trying to do with the bondo? there's no way to tell you what else might work if we don't know what you're working on.



If you're trying to fill in seams, I would just use Bondo spotting and glazing putty. It fills in seams and gaps like a charm and can be dry or wet sanded smooth. You can pick it up in tubes at Wal-Mart for a couple bucks. I always refer to it as the "red" stuff because it!

Pack looks pretty awesome, by the way!

looks like a pretty big gap to fill with bondo. It will probably add some weight too. Couple suggestions: CA glue a small piece of plastic inside to act as a floor and fill on top of that, or go to HomeDepot buy some expanding foam in a can, squirt some in there near the top to help support the bondo.
