    Ive personally never seen gold bondo (?) but I would suppose that if it is Auto Body Filler then it is the same thing.

    Gold bondo is a better quality body filler. It is smoother and creamier (sounds like cake icing) and is easier to apply and spread than standard body filler and will not clog sandpaper.

  5. #55
    Ahh good to know... So its a filler that's in between "pink" Body filler and Rondo? kinda... right? lol... i dont have gold bondo sold where i live so i wouldnt know :/

    And don't forget it stops athletes foot and mild skin irritations.



    I've never come across Gold Bondo, anywhere in my travels. Is this a new product, is it sold exclusively somewhere?

    I saw it when i dropped by Auto Zone yesterday. It's by the name "Dymand DeLyte" or something like that... Gold color auto body filler at only about $5 more than regular bondo.

  9. #59
    I've never even heard of that brand >.<

    Well, If it's amn Auto Body Filler then I dont see why you cant use it. Let us know how it goes ^^

    yep, next time i get paid i'll be pickin up some of this. and a few more cans of spray rubber.

    here's another one for ya. I've been having a problem with my pep armor splitting & tearing at the edge seams. Seems like there's a helluva lot of stress points on the edges, even when they're bondo-ed and coated in rubber. So I thought that it'd be a wise idea to reinforce the seams & bought drywall joint tape. It's the nylon mesh tape that you can get a hold of at home depot for about $7.50 a roll. You can't tear it with your fingers so i'm thinking that this stuff should do a magnificent job of holding the seams together even if the fiberglass cracks over the top of it. I've got the belt and the left thigh curing right now so we'll see how well this stuff holds up very soon.

    ok 1st off im a new member (this is an awsom forum im os glad i joined)

    anyway, me and 2 of my friends have started making armor. one of my friends is making a low-def mark VI and me and my other friend are making the WETA odst. we are almost finished with the helmets and are going to fiberglass them tomorow. we used scotch tape and we read somewhere that the scotch tape can desolve and it will turn into a mess. should i put something on the outside to stop that from hapening (like glueing it or wraping it in something).

    also i looked at this thread --> link <-- and i saw how the sweet the helmet worked. i also heard about using bondo. what is the difrence of using bondo and sculpting putty??? like is one easyer or beter than the others???.

    o and im also making a battle rifle out of wood. it looks awsome. ill see if i can make a thread when im done so u all can see it ;D

    i've used scotch tape before on long joints and have had a love/hate relationship with it ever since. it doesn't dissolve per say, but if you aren't careful and do not have an excellent bond with the cardstock, the resin can cause the adhesive to lose its cohesion, in other words it will cease to hold your joint. just make sure that if you do have tape (especially on the outside) go very slowly and start at the middle of the tape strips. Also make sure that you coat the inside of your parts as the double fiberglass layer creates a more resilient media. multiple coats on the edges help out a lot too! I'd also recommend using super glue instead of scotch tape. i'm almost done with the full suit and have only gone through about 3 bottles of gorilla super glue. The nice thing about this is that Gorilla's super glue is rubber (probably urethane) reinforced so it makes for a very tough anti-shock bond. High stress points will still crack depending on whether or not you scored your folds before you bent them.

    BTW, i just got done with the drywall tape experiment! most of the stress points seem to hold together very well with this addition, however the points that experience a higher than average stress factor still crack, but will still hold together with the tape in place & fiberglassed over.

    I just got finished with my first MKVI suit and i was wondering:

    Are you supposed to have total freedom of movement with the high def torso? or are your arms supposed to stop at 90 dead ahead? The reason why i ask is because i had to basically scale the torso up so that it would fit around my mid section (i still had to bridge it) because i guess i'm barrel chested - 39". Anyway, i just posted up the finished work in the hall of honor section of the molded armor discussion so i guess those of you with more experience'll have to tell me so that when i do this again i'll be able to do it right. Thanks!

    hey guys just wondering how you scale a chest. from under the arm pits across your chest or from shoulders down?

  16. #66
    Hello hello.

    I'm sort of confused with a particular process.

    After you bondo, whats the step after that? Is there anything in particular that you must apply on bondo before painting other than primer?

    I'm ready for painting and I have the appropriate primers for my paints, but am I missing anything or should I continue to paint?

    One more thing, is Krylon a good choice for bondo?

    Primer should be fine. Just make sure the primered surface is smooth, as the quality of the final finish depends on the quality of the surface to start. Paint will show any imperfections. I think you'll be fine with Krylon, as well.

    One last thing. Can water ruin bondo?

  19. #69
    Short answer - no. Ever seen a car with bondo on it? It holds up very well. I'd finish with my bondo work and lay some primer and paint down though. Unless you meant soaking the piece in a bucket of water...not advised.

    can anyone talk me through on how to scale the hayabusa helmet from the wiki so i can wear it?

  21. #71
    measure your head from chin to top and put that number (in centimeters) in the assembled height box. That should be pretty close. You can use the Q&A Team as well for questions like this. Very knowledgeable people in all areas of armor building.

  22. #72
    I was thinking more along the lines of wiping bondo with a wet rag or towel. Not recommended?

  23. #73
    about the hayabusa it has the top spike on it so you need to add like 4-5 centimeters to your head size. and if im not mistacken ppl will wet sand it so it should be fine

    Wet towels are just fine, no worries with the bondo. Just smooth your bondo, primer, and paint :]
