Bondo Cream Hardener Shortage?

    Has anyone else had trouble finding the 2.75 oz tubes locally? My Lowes has been without them for months. I managed to find a couple tubes a month ago at O'Reilly but now they no longer have any available. Same with my local Walmart and other hardware or auto supply stores...no one has it and can't tell me if or when they'll get more. I've even checked on amazon and a few collision repair industry sites with no luck.
    Does anyone have a good lead where to find it?

    I have Keystone Light Body Filler delivered by Keystone Automotive. I always order 4-6 extra tubes of hardener. On the last delivery, only 1 extra tube of hardener was delivered.

    Benzoyl Peroxide is bondo Catalyst. It’s also used in acne cream.
    Some chemical companies might sell it

    Same here. I've tried everywhere in my little town and it can't be found. I noticed Amazon is out of the red but has the white and blue. I guess one is as good as the other.

    I went to one of the 3 Wal Marts in my area yesterday and bought 3 big cans of Bondo ($18.40/can). They only had 1 tube of hardner, so I bought that as well.
    :)

    Last Friday I went to six stores and nothing! The last stop I finally found a gallon can of Bondo and paid 40$ for it
