A Serious Bondo Question

    OK, I am unapologetically a “bondo” ear guy, but I have a confession of sorts and a question for the others here in taxinet land that also use bondo for ears. The confession….as I insert the bondo into the ear I cannot help but distort my face, twist my lips and stick my tongue out a little, a la Michael Jordan as he goes up for a dunk. I literally can’t NOT do it. It’s kinda crazy, but I can’t help myself! LOL!!!
    Now my question is, does anybody else do that or something similar? Or am I just sniffing too much bondo?

    LOL! Maybe you should post a selfie of your expression when bondo-ing an ear!

    There is something really wrong with you. When inserting Bondo, you open your eyes wide, pull your head back and tilt to the right while slightly turning your head to the left and you must have an expression of panic and dread upon thy face.

    I did mechanic work on trucks and equipment for 28 years. I always made an apparent grimacing face when working on difficult things. Unfortunately I carry that over after work and my wife accuses me of always being angry by the way I look.

    I had a guy tell me he uses aluminum screening inside his Bondo and fiberglass ears to add extra strength.

    I don't do bondo ears, but I use bondo for the skull cap. When I do I wear tie dye shirt, leather buckskin pants, moccasins, flowers in my hair, lava lamp going and moody blues playing in the background. That puts me in the mood!!!!

    I have an old can of Bondo that I open when entering into my shop just to have the aroma. It's like taxidermy incense.

    George The older I get, the better I was.

    Mike, there's a physiological reason for that. Your brain is trying to tell your body how dumb you are for using a body filler as an adhesive.

    Yes George
    bondo does not equal glue
    But they won’t drum
    And when I’m doing some serious scale tipping
    My tongue is in and out
    LOL

    LOL...It's caused by an adrenaline rush caused by the fear that you'll be suddenly interrupted by some unexpected problem or person while shaping the ear and timing the bondo "kick off". Nothing worse than someone or something interrupting you during the critical stage...LOL
