I need to build up a PFS grip and Bondo is the obvious choice. Since I've never used it before, I'd appreciate any advice. Do I need an aspirator? Should I use it outside?

Are there alternatives ?

Thx.

Bondo will work. But here are two alternatives

The glove I have not tried. The stick on palm swell does a poor job (MHO) if your stocks grip is checkered.

One guy used hot glue and it worked for a reasonable time before starting to come loose.

No need for a respirator but you will need a mask when you sand it. Bondo is easy to work with, you will need the right sand papers and a spaghetti file would be helpful and an applicator ( squeege) I am an old body man Gene, call me if you need help

Gene, if you remember the MX2000RS PFS grip I modified and had dipped, I used a product from Ace Hardware called Raycrete. It's a 2 part polymer that was easy to shape and mold and is much stronger and more resilient than bondo. I just roughed up the places on the grip before I put it on. I extended the grip and built a perfect palm swell with it. I would use it again. Harv Shell

There is a product out there called "kneadtite (sorry if the spelling is wrong)" that is a 2 part epoxy that is in the form of a putty. You simply just work it around in your hand to activate it then form it the way you want to. It doesn't hardly have any odor and it very durable. It sands and finishes up like regular body filler.

It may be known by other names, so just take a look at the local hardware store.

I used the Kneadatite for a palm swell on my P gun works great and had it on for years now. Google it, I got mine on line. Butch H

I've used Kneadtite to form a grip, I put some saran wrap over it so I could grip and squeeze it into exactly the right shape without getting on my hands. Worked great and left a nice smooth surface as well.

I would go with Bondo unless you want to add weight. The epoxy putty , commonly called plumber's putty, will be heavier.

700X-user, that stuff goes by a variety of names. It comes in shades of grey and black. You can find it in the plumbing section at Lowes. It is also usually on the counter of every automotive store. Sometimes advertised using it to stick penny's, golf balls, pvc pipe and all sorts of stuff to pop bottles. It has been around forever.
