    i use a masons board for a mud board its a flat piece of metal 12x12, with a handle on the bottom, no hand fatigue, another way is those stupid "No Parking" signs, perfect mudboard, i also like Evercoat products i like Z Grip.

    I use the mdf circles I cut out of sub boxes for the sub holes as a mixing platform or if I don't have any I use a piece of 1/4" glass that is 12"x12" and it cleans up easily so I can reuse it all the time.

    Yeah i use glass as a mixing board and 5/$1 plastic spatulas from the dollar store as a mixing tool. They're flexible so they clean easy and its easier to fold the filler than the popsicle sticks I used back in the day

    actually your not suppost to use rattle can paint cuz it globs up your sand paper.. they actually have a "guide coat" that u apply.. but not a 100% what it was.. i wasn't a painter.. i was a body tech..

    its either SEM or SMC that makes a spray bomb guide coat, just a flat black with a really fine mist nozzle. i prefer the spray bomb guide with the SW p30a primer we use considering it dries with such a gloss the powder doesnt stick to it well once fully cure. powder on filler work is the shiz though.
