    Do not change the amount of hardener based on ambient temp. You need a 50:1 ratio at all times with most fillers for proper curing. This is basic chemistry. If it's warm outside keep the filler cool until you need to mix it. This will give you more time to work it. Conversely, if it's cold, keep it warm until you need to mix it. And for shade, why not just back it into the garage that is right behind the car???

    As an auto body technician I was taught my whole career that it is better to put on thick coats. In a body shop if your boss saw you putting on coat after coat he would lose his mind. that shit has to get primed and painted and there's no time to screw around with mixing up 15 different layers of body filler. get your metal straight, no thicker than a 1/4 inch of mud, sand that shit straight and send it to the painter. This is a money making business and they only give you so much time. Oh and this guy is doing it right by the way.

    Mixing stirring it to quick or adding to much harder or not pressing " and it depends on what type of filler your using " bondo sucks , rage extreme by ever coat is boss

    Man! You Americans are so lucky to have better body filler found in automotive stores. Here in Mexico, all the good stuff is expensive, where as all the cheap crap is inexpensive. This cheap filler I have, gets so many pinholes and mixed spots, doesn't even touch 3M quality.

    Plastic spreaders designed for body-filler are the best. For mixing I use a flat glass tray from a micro-wave. Hardened filler can be scraped off with a razor-blade scraper.
