Just as the topic says...

I couldn't find it on the can.

It is going to be in the low 30's f. here for the next couple days.

I have the All-purpose Bondo resin from Home Depot.

Is it warm enough for me to use this lately I'm too impatient to wait //content.invisioncic.com/y282845/emoticons/smile.gif.1ebc41e1811405b213edfc4622c41e27.gif

Thanks

With it being that cold I wouldnt do it, but if you must just add tons of hardener. If you have ever worked with resin you know you add more hardener when it's colder.

Take off your skirt guys Bondo/Plastic is not that bad indoors anyways why wouldnt you use a respirator for the fumes? Try using a fixture with a heating lamp and try and stay away from Bondo Brand its the Kraco Stereos of auto body materials...Chromalite works really well, try your local NAPA...I hope this helps

Hmmmmm. I just used some bondo the other day and i bet it was in the 20s out (it was snowing). I did it i the garage but the fumes were pretty nasty so i opened th big doors and the stuff still dried quik and hard. and it hasnt mysteriosly disinegrated yet, so i say give it a try.

Thinking of going this year. Around August maybe? Never flown before and I know nothing about flights. Any tips on when is best time to buy tickets? What airline? What class? And as far as Costa...

Seems kind of stupid to prevent helping others with advice on equipment from Amazon, doubt that Amazon is preventing this either. Pain in the arse!

I had two Skar amps (4ch & a monoblock) go bad within a year. Post #2 is an excellent recommendation.
