    Yeah I have had people watch me work tell me about how much easier it is to use the "milkshake" method. I still think it's a cop out for people who don't know how to properly apply body filler. I usually use kitty hair to help form the shape a lttle better, then comes filler. If it's justa wavy surface I'm trying to fix then I wil skip the kitty hair also. And I love my cheese grater body file lol
