Hmmm, not sure I'd want the smell of Bondo in the house, nasty stuff. If you want quicker setting, use this stuff. Instead of ready mix in a bucket, it's dry and you add water. It works like cement in that it chemically reacts and sets up in 45 minutes, but sands like drywall mud. Or they have 90 minute if that's too quick.

LOL @ Bondo, Mark. I used that stuff on my first car. Riggs is right: it's nasty stuff that I wouldn't want around inside the house.

Riggs, I use the pink stuff that dries white. It's got the consistency of marshmallow; lots of air but little actual moisture. When I try to work with it it doesn't want to fill into the gaps and will not cling to the surface of the drywall. I ended up slopping the stuff on then spreading with my fingers as if it were clay instead of using a spatula. I'll hit it with my palm sander tomorrow to get it even and do a second thinner coat.

I'm in the middle of several projects. Doing interior trim, drywall, new bathroom vanity, finishing a kitchen gut and remodel. We bought a foreclosed meth lab in the country.

Sooo...today I folded some laundry, did the dishes, and got caught up in a video game. Made lunch and watched The Punisher. Now it's time to pick up the kids at school. Some days aren't as productive as others.

Oh yeah. I gotta get on those light bulbs too.

And to all you guys doing drywall, you can buy drywall in 10 minute through 90 minute dry time. I just picked up some 20 for seams but I used to use 10 minute for nail holes and spackling before a paint job. Dries almost instantly and easy sanding.

Up at 545 AM, kids off to school, went to my son's Sophomore sit down with his counselor and him at 8 AM, at 845 AM I drove 2 hours to Fairfield CT to look at a Jeep for my son that was sold as I was test driving it ( The guy can have it, not nearly as nice as described on the online ad. Just a waste of time and gas.), at 10:30 AM I drove back to Central CT stopping along the way at a number of Dealerships to scout out other Jeeps for sale along with a stop at Dicks sporting goods to pick up baseball pants for my son and finally got home and ate my first meal of the day at 2:30 PM, picked up daughter at bus stop at 3:10 PM, just finished grilling boneless/skinless chicken thighs for dinner tonight and after dinner my daughter has a chorus concert at school. Can't wait for bed time!
