i can never make my hardener last as long as the bondo? I think i need about 3 times as much as they actually send. I'm just impatient i guess

My bondo runs out before the hardener, but I mix it to just a pink gray.......hotter for some jobs. It is a progressive, once it starts to go, it all goes...LOL..

Using too much hardener will result in a not as hard set up. Whereas using a little less than recommended extends the curing times and will result in harder bondo. BUT, I'm talking a very small amount of fluctuation. Stick to the recommended amount for the most part. You will get to the point where you recognize the right color when mixed properly...


One Tube?

It takes me at least three BIG ones to get through a gallon! I thought, if it didn't smoke it doesn't work. See, you can learn something new here EVERY day!


Griz, that's why NAPA makes all that money

I'm like OF. That's why I buy the extra tubes they sell right beside the cases of Bondo that I buy (Actually I use Marsten's White Fill as it's cheaper). They give me 4 tubes with a case and I always buy 4 more.


yeah me too
