    I have finished the resin stage and have commenced to the bondo stage but my question is: how do u guys do your bondo stage because I just finished bondoing the chestpiece and the helmet but after that I was exhausted is there an easy and efficient way to do the bondo

    Other than buying an orbital sander not really. A dremel will take away A lot of material quick but it leaves tool marks and takes just as much sanding to get rid of them then just doing it by hand.

    Applied one layer sanded it down. Filled in the low spots with another layer. You won't be able to sand it down all the way smooth with one coat. then spot puttied the small holes.

    Bondo is just plain hard work (and one of the reasons I switched to foam).

    You’ll get through, it just takes patience and elbow grease.

    But a power sander is nice.

    I did use a dremel for mine with the highest grit sand paper I could find for them and even then it was only the super high spots that got hit. And when it bit down to hard it left super bad tool marks that needed to be refilled.

    I have decided to wait to get a respirator instead of giving myself headaches every time because all I have to protect myself from the fumes is a dust mask and a rag over my face so im going to wait
    but while I wait i will be making weapons out the new foam that just arrived but i will put a poll on what weapons u guys think i should make
    PS the results are in for the armor color and it will be primary blue and secondary white

    Yeah you defiantly need a respirator that filters out organic Fumes.
