    evercoat everglass?

    tell me more please... this is the first I've heard of it. I wanted to play with bondo on a future mod, what makes this stuff better? easier to use, better looking, less toxic?

    BTW- if you make it up to Oakland on your trip to Cali, you're welcome to drop me a line.

    Oh yeah, and it's looking good! I like that fan and blowhole combo, can't wait to see it finished up.

    You found the Evercoat! :thumb: Just a warning, it gets real dusty when you sand it. You should also invest in a filtered respirator or mask if you haven't already.

    @ ModMinded, it's a fiberglass filler, it spreads easier, cures faster, and it's stronger than Bondo. It also has Kevlar strands in it, so it will flex if stressed, which is ideal for plastic bezels.

    Bondo also shrinks as it cures, which can cause hair line cracks. The thicker the Bondo application, the worse the problem.
