Regarding this, does spot putty need hardener?

Spot putty is another type of filler that is used to fill tiny pinholes in the body filler. If you don't fill those pinholes, the filler might crack when there is any movement of the underlying metal. It is very easy to sand, dries fast and doesn't need a hardener to cure. You can just apply it from the tube.

Furthermore, can you paint over spot putty? You can use glaze putty over primer. I know a lot of people use it during priming, but go ahead and use it in body filler. Spray some Guide Coat or put the Dry Guide Coat on there. It comes in two different methods and it just helps you identify any lows or things like that before you get to the priming stages.

Moreover, how long does it take for Bondo spot putty to dry?

Do you have to sand between coats of Bondo?

With a palette knife, quickly apply the Bondo, leaving some excess material to be removed. For a super-smooth finish, apply a very thin layer of glazing and spot putty with your palette knife. Let it thoroughly dry, then paint. Sand with at least 220-grit paper between coats.

How long does Bondo take to dry before sanding?

I've used bondo quite a bit. Generally, in a matter if a few minutes it will start to harden and get rubbery. At that point, you can carve it up with a utility knife, a hand planer or a bondo rasp. Just make sure you leave enough to do a final sanding, usually within 10 to 15 minutes you can start sanding it.

How soon can Putty be painted?

Believe it or not it actually takes between 8-12 weeks before its dry enough to be decorated. Some people don't leave it this long but we recommend you do. One of the reasons putty has been used by glaziers for so long is that if painted it never really goes hard and dries out completely.

Is Bondo body filler waterproof?

Both provide excellent waterproof properties as they do not absorb water. Both fiberglass fillers are stronger than regular body filler. The long hair filler provides the most strength out of the two. The filler is also thick, which makes it hard to level and smooth like regular body filler.

How long does car putty take to dry?

If your filler hardens too fast, you used too much, if it takes too long, you didn't use enough. You only want to mix what you can use in about 10 minutes. Properly mixed, body filler will begin to thicken in 10-15 minutes, and be fully cured in 30.

Can you put Bondo over paint?

Fillers and putties will normally work OK over properly sanded (80-180 grit) cured OEM paint. However, with so many different types of aftermarket paint available (lacquer, enamel, urethane, water-based). We recommend that all paint be removed where filler is to be applied.”

Do you have to prime glazing putty?

Always prime a bare sash with an oil-based primer prior to glazing. Wait until the glazing putty has formed a skin (3-4 days for Type-M putty or 2-3 weeks for Dual Glaze putty) before you attempt to paint. Do not prime the glazing putty after you have glazed your window. Just add 2 coats of a quality enamel paint.
