what is better to use than bondo?

i welded 2 pieces of plastic together and need to smooth the front portion off.

i know bondo and have worked with it before, but i am not fond of the results.

What would you suggest me using and where can i get it from?

Thanks

fusion maybe? i'm not sure if it does the same job as bondo, i just know that it is a good plastic epoxy and apparently does decent body filling.

Bondo has came a long way from when your dad was layin it. There is now fiberglass strand glass that works well. There is also bondo that is made for flexible things such as plastic fairings. Im not sure about the name but any body shop supply place would have something for ya.

If you weren't pleased with the results of bondo the only thing I can think of is that you didn't do enough prep work to get it right... Now Im not trying to be mean or anything but using Bondo isn't easy... its not just throw some hardner on slap it down and hit it with the DA.... you really have to be patient...

Bondo is not meant to build things up.. it is only used as a filler it is a finishing product.... and I honestly cant think of anything that is going to do what your looking for without spending some major cash!!!
