Evercoat Glazing Putty for Center Leg

I'm running out of excuses for not working on droid #2, so tonight I gave in and did a little work on the center leg.

I whipped up a batch of Evercoat Glazing Putty to smooth over the small bumps and grooves in the center leg. Evercoat is similar to Bondo, but it sands to a smoother finish.

Evercoat sets very fast. In 3-4 minutes it starts to harden, and within 15 minutes it's sandable.

I sanded the top and "nose" of the leg, but I stopped after a while, because sanding kicks up a very fine powdered dust, which is not good in a garage environment. I think I'm going to have to wait until I can do this outdoors, and probably while wearing a mask.

I'm happy with the results of the sanded areas, but I need to be careful to apply the Evercoat more evenly.

Where did you get your Evercoat?

I bought the Evercoat at a paint specialty store in Fountain Valley, CA. It was around $26.00 per can, including tax, so it's quite pricey. I see comparable prices for Evercoat on the web, once shipping is factored in.
