looks great, nice work!

BTW, bondo is the worst... you're much better off going to an auto body supply shop and buying some real filler. Everything about it is better, and it's usually only like $20-25 a gallon.

I know it's a brand name, but it's the worst brand out there, IMHO. If you use a professional grade filler, it's like night and day for ease of use. Good stuff feathers out much better than bondo.

After I used auto body filler at work, I realized how much better it is to work with than Bondo. So much easier to sand and alot smoother than Bondo. I'm gonna be doing some glassin tommorow and possibly some filler.

The glass is joined to the steel with layers of fiberglass mat and resin,then bondo is used to smooth it out...Im sure their are better grades of "Bondo" type stuff but I have been using it for 30 years and havent had problem....Its not a real smooth of a finish but dats what glazin puddy is for! Lol I have bondo on this van from 20 years ago and its still lookin good no cracks pealin or nuttin!! So when applied right it last long enough 4 me! lol
