Beater La Scala's are DONE!

Recommended Posts

Remember us?  Finally got the time and temperatures to do the Bondo, primer and Duratex (1st coat).  Thought I would share the story (again) in photos from on the truck in my driveway to today...My corners are not as nice as some of you guys, but I'm gettin' the hang of it....

 

Thank you to all who offered advice and support.  Will post more pics when drivers and horns are installed.

So..............how did you like working with bondo?

It was a little tricky, which I expected...took a couple of times to figure out the cream hardener proportion, and how long I had to work with it, but overall it worked well.  Sanded down nicely, took the primer well, and the Duratex.  Looking forward to putting on the second coat and really smooth everything out.

Very nice job! There is nothing like the feeling when you do this sort of thing then get to sit down and enjoy your efforts.
