I use a micro substitute for the big ripples, it weighs a lot less than bondo. My wife is the one who goes for the spot putty for fine finishing. It is acrylic I believe. About like thick acrylic paint. I am always amazed at how you think you got it ready for paint and no there is still hours or days worth of work left.

I don't like micro because it forms silica dust when sanded. Can be real bad for your health. I use the purple and tan plastic substitutes for micro by West.

The supreme power in America cannot enforce unjust laws by the sword; because the whole body of the people are armed.”
