    Does the depth guideline mean that the filler can't exceed 1/4" deep or can the filler be built up the filler 1/4" at a time? In other words, if I want to fill a dent that is 1" deep, can I use four 1/4" layers to fill it? Thanks for the video and thanks in advance for your answer!

    This is a great video, I just needed to do a minor repair on a canoe, and wanted to do some cosmetic work over the fresh fiberglass, but this was a great video explaining how to use the Bondo I bought.

    I bought bondo gold but the hardener was stolen from it when I opened it, but I have hardener left from the original bondo body filler(not the gold) could I use the original Hardener with the gold filler achieving the same finished product? Aka are the bondo hardeners universal?

    If i sanded down an area to half metal and old primer and now its smooth do i have to put bondo over the metal before primer? Also old metal that wasnt rusted is starting to get a little rust. Any tips would be very great full!

    Thanks Donnie, I've enjoyed watching your vidoes. I'm working on a restoration and I have a question. Does the body filler give adequate protection to the bare metal or should I use an etch primer to cover the bare metal before putting on the filler? I'd appreciate to hear your thoughts on that. Thank you.

    If mixed properly, it should be ready to sand in 10 to 15 minutes. The temperature may effect this. If it is real hot, you may have less time. If it's cold, it may take longer.

    I cannot believe you could stretch so little education out to 9 minutes. In Uk what you just said is 30 seconds training only, I guess we learn to knosh up quicker over here

    It would be a shame if you did not get ripped when these other normal people are able to burn off fat easily with Slim Body Maximizer (check it out on Google).
