Look for a polyester resin based body filler. Once you find one, its manufacturer or the shop that sells it will probably lead you to similar products.Hi everyone. I fiberglassed my helmet and now im looking for a nice technique to smooth it. But i have a question: does anyone now the spanish name or equivalent of bondo body filler? Because i have no idea where to buy it, modeling putty will do the same function?
That is most commonly referred to as Rondo. Cereal Killer has some videos that mention it. I'd have to look again and see where he explains it, but check his videos out in the Armor Related Videos section.I skimmed through a topic once where someone mentioned mixing Bondo with resin....I can't seem to find that post again now though. Does anyone have a comment for that? Is there any advantage to be had?
Thanks alot, that answered my other question about what rondo was, thought maybe it was a typo.That is most commonly referred to as Rondo. Cereal Killer has some videos that mention it.

I'm using a dremel tool to sand/detailinghey i dont know if anyone one will read this but im almost at the body filler stage and i wanna know how do i detail my helmet. when i say detail i mean lines and ect. i am mkaing a recon helmet halo reach style and i want to get alll those lines that are in the atcuall helmet. i just need to know how to go about this exactly?
What about using wood filler in place of bondo? It sets hard and can be molded much the same way as bondo does. Plus there is no smell to it if you have to use it in the apartment or doing it outdoors is not an option.
