yes, the stuff is safe on foam .... its chemically similar to boat resin ( even smells like it )

Its called autobody "Icing" and is made by USC

www.uschem.com


this is what the pros use .. you can get it at most pro bodywork shops such as where you would buy PPG, or HOK paints. I do not think you will find this in the standard PepBoys style auto store ...

Bondo takes for ever to dry, and flakes off easily , this stuff holds on really well, and has no tendencies to chip or crack .. My good friend Chip from www.apwpaint.com put me onto this stuff, and i have been using it since .

Must be a polyester based filler based on the smell you indicate. Probably very good stuff. I could not get the link to work either but look forward to trying it.

Thats going to be some serious sanding brother V..

Having done this type of work before, I agree, that is some serious F'n sanding. I just hate to see someone go through that, but you guys are certainly on track.
Yea, and for gosh sake, wear a dust mask - or better yet for that job, a respirator - the cloud of dust is going to be incredible - and really not good for you!

Thanks guys, the bondo was the cheapest route to go with such a large amount of filler. As for the sanding, man i already have so much sanding in this thing that it will be ok, i need to get my buddy whos idea this was, to get into the sanding. Heck, he hasnt even touched the darned thing yet. haha, i will just start charging him by the hour or by the quart of dust lol. nick

bondo also is not compatible with most foam and most plastics ... ( i believe it has an acetone or similar solvent in it .. ) not sure if you knew .... I have at times past used bondo where there was styrene used also, and it melted the sturene and never dried ... try a little first to see if bondo will actually work ..

Default Did It Fly?

Nick,
Was this project ever completed...did it fly? I am curious about the result with respect to where you calculated your CG to be.

Thanks,

Ed

Is the Icing compatible with polystyrene?
