Bondo vs Dynatron

Sup pepoz.. Iv been using bondo brand body filler for filling the dents in my pinto. I dont know if bondo brand bondo is a plastic filler or not, but I got this Dynatron body filler a few weeks ago. I thought I noticed a big difference. So I decided to pull out the hardened body filler from the mixing bowls that come with most body filler containers and compare. The Dynatron body filler is very flexable and as not as !!hard!! as bondo body filler. Is this good or bad? Should I use bondo or dynatron?

I'm just guessing here, but that other filler, may be for repairing bumper covers on newer cars. It has to be flexible for so it doesnt crack of when it gets bumpt. I would also like to say that using the mixing boles that come with the bondo containers may not be a good idea. Alot of times u cant mix them good enough and if there is any white none mixed streeks, it could cause the bondo to fail. I've been taught to use a board and a spackiling spachela. Take a stick put the putty on the board and mix the putty in well with the spachela. After words scrap off the excess, and your good to go. I found that way is alot faster and works alot better

Chris, I am not familiar with Dynatron, but am very familiar with Bondo brand. Even though Bondo was the inventor of the plastic filler, in my opinion they have not kept up with the state of the art and are at the bottom end of the fillers available. I happen to prefer Evercoat products and there are different grades. My favorite (and more expensive) is Evercoat Rage Gold. It is creamier, easier to mix and spreads smoothly with very few bubbles and voids. And when it comes sanding time, it sands easy and does not load the paper. As a guesstimate, it probably saves me half the time from start to applying finish coat (over Bondo brand). I'm sure there are many other brands out there that are as good and others on this board have their favorites. You may want to buy small pint sized containers of various brands and find out for yourself how different ones work for you.

metal spatulas don't work too well, you can get ones actually for body filler. I normally buy the ones made by Bondo. They're pink, and come in a pack with three different size spatulas.

DYNATRON is the parent company, BONDO is just one of their many products, they make several lines of body fillers.

Something I found out the other day...Weimer was talking to his local jobber and was informed that of ALL the materials out there...Bondo / Evercoat / Etc. that there are only three companies in the U.S. that makes all of the different brands and all have the same basic formula.
