Re: Jesses' 48 PU

Worked on the two front fenders today. I am not very good at working bondo. I always watched my dad work it flawless, well at least he made it look that way. Guess it was all the years of experience he had. Honestly I was afraid of it and afraid of messing it up. And guess what? I DID!
I thought that if I added a small amount of hardner I would have more time to work it. Boy was I wrong. I had to scrape off the first mix as it never fully hardened. It was soft... so I called my dad and after he got done laughing he suggested I scrape it off and work in smaller sections and add enough hardner..
So I can claim to have officially bondo'd my fenders...

Re: Jesses' 48 PU

Wish I could say I had not made the same mistake, but...

The truck is coming along nicely.

I plan to go look for that fender this weekend.

I am always the other direction. Too much hardner and it sets in like 30 seconds and I have to throw a 1/2 pound blob in the garbage. Keep at it! It's looking great!

Re: Jesses' 48 PU

I know your pain, I’m almost done with my bodywork and have been sanding for a month and a half. It’s like eating an elephant one bite at a time. Hang in there!
