The joy and the burden of bondo

So still working on the interior of the vehicle. Decided to go with a smooth dash. Started sanding the texture off but that is a pain in the ass. So decided to use a thin coat of bondo body filler instead. That stuff is great! Coated, sanded, and primed. Hopefully the filler primer will work like it's supposed to and fill in the small sandpaper scuffs, we shall see. I'll post pics of the progress tomorrow. THe downside is being how I'd never used the shit before I put a LIL to much on one of the pieces, so yeah... anywho! I think it'll be nice when it's done. Anyone ever used Bondo before??

bad idea---trust me, I've worked with bondo before. If you wet sand it with 220 or 300 grit and work up to 1000 grit-that's your best bet. But dry sanding, as you said above, won't cut it. Wet sanding is always a good idea!
