i just bought a brand new pack of BONDO GLAZING & SPOT PUTTY and i was wondering if i can use this to shave door handles or mold body kits, or lips with it. It's the one that comes in the orange bo

spot putty is only useful in small amounts in small areas, this stuff crumbles veeeeerrry easily, maybe try just regular bondo, or modeling putty.

I use a white putty also avilable as "green putty"
Filling seems fine I would hate to try to bond with it though seems to flexable and not enought bond strength to it. As far as bonding I would use glue and follow with the putty to fade the seams.

I'ma gonna hijack this thread just a little...

I have that bondo spot and glaze putty, and it is fairly nice. However, I have a couple problems with it.

1) shrinking. It does shrink quite a bit. But don't combat this by using a lot of bondo. If you glob on too much, it cracks.

2) scribing panel lines in it. Doesn't really work. The putty crumbles far too easily. Anybody have any tips on scribing panel lines in crumbly putty? Or can somebody recommend a better putty to use? (possibly epoxy putty?)

i would say epoxy would probably work, it seems like it would,
are u talking about crumbling spot putty? cause you shouldnt even waste your time with that stuff, its good for doing tiny touch-ups in your bondo work, and for filling small lines, but the second you do anything more that sand it, it just comes right off. (ie: dont cut it, dont get it wet, if you paint it, u need like 40 coats!)

This is the stuff I am using. People have commented that it is basically exactly the same as Testors Red.

If you are going to scribe lines through putty, don't use putty. Instead use gap-filling super glue (Thick super glue). Zap-a-Gap works well, because it hardens quickly with the use of accelerator, and is glass smooth=scribes well.
