    You can actually do either one you choose. If you make a thin mix, it is easier to cover the entire project and then sand to a decent finish. You could also (depending on the amount of curvature) cover it with a nice tweed or your choice of fabrics. Just my opinion :D Hope it helps a bit.

    id maybe buy some glazing putty instead of bondo. the finish turns out better because it is thinner than bondo and it doesnt sound like you need a lot of build.

    Thanks a ton cointelpro, but I can't take credit for that article. That's from a lowrider site ( not sure of the addy, but I did give credit on the page). We do alot of fiberglass here, but when someone obviously does such an awesome job (like the lowrider people) we take a back seat :D . I'm just trying to gather information (tips & tricks) all in one place. That way people are free to pick and choose what they need. Thanks for the compliment though.
    As far as glazing putty goes, xyswany is right. I would use the putty if it were a very small piece. The only problem I ever had with it is (depending on the fiberglass finish) you may need to use a large amount in order to fill the face surface. :lol: Just my opinion, hope it helps.
