    Any Body Work Pros?!?!?

    FUCKIN' A!!!! you guys know any tricks to keep your sandpaper from cloggin' full of bondo? I know I have enough hardener mixed with it.....because the color of it matches the plastic spreaders that Bondo makes. Even with 50 grit.....shit clogs right up after about 20 seconds of sanding, literally............yeah....and I know that it's fully cured. So don't ask me if I let it cure before I sand!!!! pretty pissed off right here! aahhh!! OH YES........and the paper clogs no matter what kind of fuckin sander I use!!

    Use a body file.... sounds like you have the bondo too thick. What grit sandpaper are you using?

    too thick should have nothing to do with it.....bondo forms a skin when it dries....and the skin is what clogs my sandpaper. Once I break through the skin, it sands just fine without clogging. And I start out with 50 grit to bring down the unevenness. And as for body files......i hate 'em. They leave gashes and shit.

    there isnt much you can do about it.. just smack it on you pants or something to unclog it.. as long as the bondo is dry it should come rite off the paper when you clean it..

    cheese grater?... body file.. yes it will gouge a little bit, but it takes the top layer off, and makes it a lot easier. But if you want to go through abuot 10 sheets of 50 grit.. your choice.

    lol cheese grater......nice. I might try one again. I didn't like 'em because of the gouges...but I guess 50 grit'll knock 'em down pretty quick. I just HATE filling in deep scratches, gouges, and pits. I like to get it nice the first time around if possible.

    use a 40 grit disk to get the rough shape of the body work then use a finishing compound to smooth the work out then sand smooth that would be the eaisiest to do

    IF you have an air compressor try blowing it off the sand paper(like 120psi might do it) might be worth a shot

    use a wire brush, cleans it up nice and good, and you don't loose too much grit at all..

    i do body work everyday . the best way is .! apply the bondo with thin coats at a time. sand between coats .make sure the filler cools down first.thats when you sand it!i use a air sander (d. a)dual action sander 34$ walmart. you dont want a big area of bondo .keep the area as small as you can .go to local body supply store and get a tube of (icing)filler . the best stuff around . when it dries it flows out like glass .sands like baby powder ! smooth out with 320 grit paper and it s ready for paint .....good luck
