This skill requires experience if you decide to read the instructions on the product you buy,you most deffinetly will have a negative experience. If you decide to do it you will need certain body work tools and carefully read the insructions on cleaning and applying the bondo putty. Please take it to an autobody repair mechanic.

sand down damadged area, pull out all dents possible, prep surface with 500 grit sandpaper, mix bodo with hardener, apply generally, let dry, then sand to specs.

The first and perhaps most important step is to properly prepare the surrounding surfaces so you get a good bond. The resins and body fillers are available at most autoparts stores and hardware stores. Following the directions on the container, mix a small amount. Practice before applying to your car.

Start by removing any loose paint or oxidation with sandpaper. Work from a lower grit up to about 100 or 200. Try to make the surface as level as possible. Next clean the area with a degreaser. Then mix and apply the bondo. Some brands may recommend a paint primer before application. Then sand and re-apply until smooth and level.

First sand to make a good adhering surface. After you have applied bondoas close to the final contour you desire, sand with a very fine grit until you reach the desired contour.
