    You guys watch Overhaulin' right??

    The paint pro's on there all seem to use the same body filler, its green and looks like it spreads really nice. Z-Grip? Rage Gold? It HAS to be Evercoat!

    Thanks guys!!

    I'm guessing Bondo thinner is a lot like lacquer thinner. We used to thin filler with lacquer thinner in the old days. I'd be scared to thin it, unless I had a bake-on booth or had plenty of time to let the thinner evaporate...

    Thank you. I was wondering what it was. I've actually heard that Z-grip is 'bout as good as Rage Gold and cheaper, but what I have at the house here is Rage Gold.

    The bodyshop I work at. We use both rage gold and evercoat z-grip

    Our painter prefers the rage which does turn green but not what they use on overhaulin

    Our bodymen prefer the evercoat z-grip. Claim it holds up beter, sands better and all around better than rage.

    They use evercoat on overhaulin. That's what damn near all television custom shops use.

    The polyester fill talked about above

    Evercoat has "metal glaze" polyester finishing and blending putty

    The metal glaze can be used by itslef or mixed with bondo's

    When by itself. It is green and super smooth, glazed over. Sands super easy.

    When mixed with z grip you don't get all thw tiny pinholes and it also makes sanding easier.
