    This is what modding is really about. Taking a boring beige case and making into something amazing. Good work so far. Wish you would hurry up and post some more updates :)

    I have a request of the bondo god, could you do a guide? Like a pic showing how much you mix of each and how you get so much bondo applied before it clumps up like wet clay :) I'm trying a little bondo work and I can't get much more than a silver dollar sized lump applied before it gets pasty.
    If there is already a really good guide out there (with pics) can someone point me towards it?

    that mesh is a pretty good idea.. I was trying to figure out where to get some and seeing this made me realize all the dead monitors I have around here - I've got piles of the stuff!! Your mod is really turning out spectacular!

    hey jackjr, try mixing less hardener with it! i can get huge amounts out if i use small amounts of hardener (takes longer to harden - not hard to guess) so just use less and you'll be fine

    hehe that was me that said my stuff turns to lumps quickly :)
    I tried putting less and it never hardened, maybe I didn't put enough that time. Thats why I asked for a pic, its easier to see ratios than have the can say 1/2 a tube to 1/2 a can.

    Dreath1 the mixture varies depending on brand and type,

    i can't imagine it dosn't tell you on your can? or on the tube , mostly its around 50 to 1.... but you can up or down it 50% on that again to suit your needs....ive never herd of bondo going clumpy? i have a guide poster here.

    but its more about the mod rather then just bondo. have a look it may help.

    first off was to knock all the edges off using some 60g

    counter sink the holes, better to do this now before the bondo hits!

    [​IMG]


    cut some stips of flexable plastic, im using these as the guides an they will simply peel away @ the end.

    It never ends, everytime I read an update to your mods I become a slack-jawed yokel.
    I've only got one question this time, where'd you get spray putty? I've never seen that in any stores in town. It sounds like its sprayable bondo to get that smooth look, do I have the right idea?
    Nice walkthrough on that link, somehow I had never found that one. Judging from the pics I was putting waaay too much hardener in, it was a nice red color. *bonk*
    btw part 2 is down again.
