    having trouble getting the pink color to hide so that i can get these things painted or stained properly the pinkness of the bondo is continuing to show through any advice would be a big help
     
  2. use the yellow bondo at Auto Zone (if you have one)- it creates a light carmel color

    Use neutral colored hardener and they will be light gray

    Have you tried using an automotive primer? You can get it in white and its sandable for other paints to adhere.

    You can color bondo with oil or lacquer paint before you pour it even using red hardner..... Or try using mek for fiberglass resin
