      Awesome! Very informative and detailed! Thank you!

      I have a 94 explorer that is somewhat riddled in areas with small pin dents and a crease as well as a stove in passenger door. The dents along the lower area of the rear quarter are not easily accessible from the inside. Would I just sand and fill those? or would one of those hot glue buttons with the sliding hammer work?
      Here is a link to the pics.
      Thanks in advance!

      good write up man, im in my 2nd year at my high school shop class and can do dents and use bondo pretty good now but cant paint for the life of me, i love how light metal glaze is and how easy it is to sand, what would your suggestion be on racker panels, mine are rusted real bad and im wanting to replace them this year, im leaning towards weld on ones since i have a welder that i can use, also what kinds of welds should i do? i would imagine plug? thanks a lot
       
    7. well nice job done.......
      really impressive, now i am a fan of Bondo products.
      clearly explained thanks for showing step wise pics.

      The last time I saw his truck you couldn't notice where it was.. Then again that's his line of work so I'm sure he knows what he is doing..

      yeah I am fine. Different chapter in life. Once upon a time I could not get on and off this place in less than an hour if not more. I am a husband now and very very happy. I would like to stay that happy if you know what I mean.

      I am also a Daddy, and the last thing in the world I want is to watch my girl grow up wile sitting behind the computer.

      Thanks for asking. This place was and still is awesome. It will always hold a special place in my world.
