    Sponge Brush - BONDO...

    Well im in the process of spreading bondo over about a 12"x10" concave surface. The first layer was spread with a regular plastic flat spreader.. I ran out of those, so i figured ide try a sponge brush. This sponge brush just saved me about 30-60 minutes of sanding. It makes such smoother spreads and it also allows u to make curves because the sponge conforms to the surface. Just trying to save all you some time in sanding..(because sanding *****!)

    yeah, but it's a 1-shot deal isn't it? Bondo dries in a couple minutes then your brush is toast. The plastic spreaders at least can be reused.

    Well actually my plastic spreaders got all junked up too, and these sponge things are well worth the .25cents i spent on them.

    I've heard the grater method, but it seems the brand im using right now is softer.. The actual "Bondo" bondo is much tougher..
