Don't be afraid to "abandon ship" if the ear isn't going well. As it starts to kick, if you're not happy with what you have, simply pull the partially formed bondo liner back out as you turn the ear inside out. Wash with acetone and try again.

outwoods, bondo is not an adhesive but it is a very good filler. bondo will initially stick to most things it is applied on but it will not serve as any type of adhesive

Bondo easily comes off the hair, just leave it till it kicks and starts to firm a bit...wire brush and it comes of with little effort.

I saw in, I think breakthrough magazine were, I think it was Joe Meder, bondoed the ear of, I think a kudu, and when it was cured he removed the bondo liner and sanded it, ruffed it up, put veins on it, glued it and stuck it back into the ear making it a custom earliner. Food for thought.

Not sure on that but I use bondo, resin and glass chop. I don't get much on the hair when I do them but soon as I have it shaped and ready to harden, I use a brass wire brush to comb it right out. I don't sew small holes or tears in ears, just shape like usual and pinch the bit that comes out off, brush out of hair and I'm done with a little finish paint.

You have to use a release agent or you'll never get the bondo liner out in one piece (tanning oil works great) Let the bondo completely harden before removing.

Kj- If you try to get the bondo off before it starts to kick, it's sticky. Wait until it starts to kick, but don't wait until it completely hardens. Acetone will help with removal if it's being stubourne.
