    Thanks Jimmo I'm learning from the pro…working on a panel now. I'm going to return the bondo filler I bought and use 3M glaze with hardener(less messy).

    good job jimmo, im not an expert, but i dont use silicone ithere, just do exactly what ur doing and they come out great and last a long time,, good job, each individual has his own style of doin things, as long as the job last a long time ,its good, and of course last long too.

    It doesnt matter if you use the exact same color on the bumper as the rest of the car because the bumper is plastic and the car is metal so if you paint them with the exact same color it will not match it would be a differnt shade. If you look at a new car it wont match

    lol, I don't think that would be the case. It's best to eliminate wax/silicone before you start. If you sand over wax its gonna be spread all over your panel and you'll be applying primers and fillers over it. Usually a heavier cleaner at the start and a lighter one (alcohol based) before painting to remove fingerprint oils..etc. Many guys i've seen wont take the time to do from the start but it is a good practice.

    Like what I see so far. I think you are on to something people learning bodywork will need. You seem to put a lot of effort into the videos you post. They are appreciated.
