bernomatic said Jun 13, 2015 Putty One of the things Ray showed me over 40 years ago (damn, how time flies) was how to be frugal. To that end, he would use the Bondo Spot Putty instead of the Squadron versions which did (and still do) came in smaller tubes at vastly greater price. http://images11.pa...
