DENTS AND DINGS

HERE ARE INSTRUCTIONS FOR SOME BASIC BODYWORK THAT SHOULD GET YOU THROUGH THE MORE COMMON DENTS AND DINGS FOUND ON THE MOBOS.  ALOT OF PEOPLE TEND TO FROWN ON USING BONDO FOR VARIOUS REASONS THAT ARE UNFOUNDED.  USED CORRECTLY IT WILL PROBABLY OUTLAST YOU.  TO MAKE A LASTING REPAIR FOLLOW THESE RULES:  ROUGH UP THE SURFACE WITH A GRINDER OR COARSE SAND PAPER,  MIX THE BONDO ACCORDING TO MANUFACTURERS INSTRUCTIONS, IT SHOULD BE LIGHT PINK ( ION SOME CASES, LIGHT BLUE), DON'T USE EXCESSIVE AMOUNTS TO FILL A BIG DENT, BEAT OUT THE DENT FIRST.

HERE ARE A FEW OF THE TOOLS YOU WILL NEED. PICTURED IS A GALLON OF BONDO,  YOU WILL REQUIRE LESS THAN A QUART SO YOU MAY ONLY WANT TO PURCHASE THE QUART SIZE.  GALLONS COST BETWEEN $12.00-$16.00, QUARTS ?. AVAILABLE AT MOST AUTOPARTS AND PAINT SUPPLY STORES.
BONDO SPREADERS, THEY COME IN A PACK WITH ASSORTED SIZES FOR AROUND $5.00, OR A LARGE SINGLE FOR AROUND $1.00, I USUALLY BUY A COUPLE OF SINGLES AND CUT THEM DOWN TO WHATEVER SIZES I NEED.  HAMMERS,  PICTURED IS A SHRINKING HAMMER AND A MEDIUM BALL PEEN.  YOU SHOULD BE ABLE TO GET AWAY WITH JUST THE BALL PEEN. NEXT IS A HEEL DOLLY,  NOT ABSOLUTELY NECCESSARY BUT VERY HELPFUL.  YOU CAN GET A DECENT SET OF HAMMERS AND DOLLIES ON EBAY FOR AROUND $12.00, WELL WORTH THE INVESTMENT. NEXT IS A HALF ROUND WOOD RASP AND A HALF ROUND CHEESE CUTTER,  I USE THEM BOTH BUT THE WOOD RASP IS PREFERED. NEXT IS A RUBBER SANDING BLOCK, A MUST IF YOU WANT THINGS TO LOOK RIGHT. SANDPAPER,  PICTURED IS A SHEET OF 36 GRIT LONGBOARD PAPER,  I LIKE IT BECAUSE IF YOU CUT IT IN HALF YOU HAVE TWO PIECES THAT FIT THE RUBBER BLOCK PERFECTLY.  ONE OR TWO SHEETS SHOULD BE PLENTY,  ALSO REQUIRED IS ANOTHER ONE OR TWO SHEETS IN 80 GRIT.  YOU WILL ALSO NEED SANDABLE PRIMER AND A SHEET OR TWO OF 220 AND 400 GRITS WET DRY. NOT PICTURED  IS A TUBE OF SPOT PUTTY FOR REMOVING SANDING SCRATCHES AND MINOR IMPERFECTIONS.  THERE ARE A FEW OTHER ITEMS THAT MAY BE NEEDED AND I'LL GET TO THEM DURING THIS BASIC COURSE.

THIS IS A DEWALT 4 1/2 INCH ANGLE GRINDER,  SELLS FOR AROUND $55.00. I HAVE A KNOTTED WIRE WHEEL ATTACHED TO IT.  YOU DON'T NEED TO SPEND THIS MUCH IF YOU DON'T PLAN ON DOING A LOT OF WORK WITH IT. SEE THE NEXT PICTURE.

THIS IS A 4 1/2 INCH ANGLE GRINDER THAT I BOUGHT ON EBAY,  COST WITH SHIPPING WAS $13.00.  IT RUNS AS SMOOTH AS THE DEWALT, AND HAS ONLY SLIGHTLY LESS POWER.  I'VE PUT A LOT OF HOURS ON IT WITH NO PROBLEMS. YOU CAN BUY A CASE OF 5 FOR LESS THAN THE DEWALT COST.  I HAVE A 4.5" 36 GRIT GRINDING DISC ON THIS ONE.  GET ONE, YOU'LL BE GLAD YOU DID.
