    P40 contains glass fibre and is much more flexible than P38.

    Usual receipe is P40 for the main filling/shaping and then skim over with P38 to define the final shape and get a smooth finish.

    Make sure you give all areas touched by the filler a real good 'roughing up' to ensure it gets a good key on the surface, as that where it will crack if it's gonna.

    Coming on OK, is it Steve??

    Hope it all goes OK mate - not much else to do this weekend as the weather forecast is shoite, so best busy youself in the garage

    I can't stress the 'roughing up' bit enough - I usually use the edge of an broken file and cross hatch the area where the filler is going, as well as using the roughest sand papaer I can find.

    Make like the badgers ar5e
