    Hours pinpointing BB sized fishing weights Billy has some shallow dimples to dose. Always using single stage Bondo Glazing Putty #907 he would like to try something different. What has worked for you ?
    OR has anyone used the stuff this cat mentions @ about 6:40 of the video and if so, results please.
    Thanks Builders.......RRR

    The gentleman put a ton of effort into the video. It's really nicely done, but for racing here, I would not recommend following anything in the video. With respect to covering a car, just about every racer uses either vinyl or monokote (or a simple sharpie). The theory is to keep the body as light as possible (while retaining the strength) and placing the weight where it is most desirable. In the case of body filler / paint, it weights a ton and is unnecessary. Just my opinion....

    And please, do not tune your car on a treadmill :D

    !0-4 on the mill. no way........no matter about filler. Taking it back to bare wood and will sand it smooth as possible and spray with a filler primer for what few imperfections remaining........thanks Brother.......RRR
