He made special note of the angle at which the squeegee is at. The photo shows that pretty well. Again, go slow and try to keep the air out.

05-26-2004 01:47 PM Fold in 2 eggs...
Gene added the hardener and slowly FOLDED the material together. Again, trying NOT to introduce air. He made special note of the fact that quite a few bodymen just mix it together quickly. That gives you air pockets that will cause grief down the road. Whether it be while your sanding the first time or those neat little bubbles that appear out of nowhere after the car had been painted for 6 months.

Everyone knows how to mix bondo, right? How about the right way? CLEAN metal is a must. This will probably spark all sorts of comments regarding epoxy or etch primer first or last, but the excercise is to apply the bondo,not the chicken or the egg came first debate.


Gene carefullt spreads his bondo out, trying not to introduce bubbles into the material.

Gene made a trim piece that will be painted as a bumperette or bumper trim.

This is 1/2 of th bumperette. He will make a symetrical piece and weld it together in a jig that he fabricated.

A shot of Gene's press brake, that he built HIMSELF.

He's using this to put a simple bend in a bumperette.
