I was given a good piece of advice one time, by a man I respect.

He said, "Take the things that you dislike and are the worst at, and practice until you are good at them. You will see that you no longer dislike them, they won't be a chore- they will be enjoyable."

There are STILL things I'm no good at and things I don't enjoy. But at least SOME of the things I used to despise, I don't anymore. Like getting the primary needles into the jets on a Q-jet/Dual-jet. lol

But back to the JB Weld. Does it set up any harder than Bondo? I would have thought it would be harder to sand.

I've used it cured in an oven at 325 F, I don't recall what temp it will withstand, but if what's cited above is correct (and I have no reason to doubt it) it's pretty durable, at least when it comes to heat.
