    Hey folks,

    I have a quick question for all. Is creame hardener all the same?? I've seen red, black and blue? I have some bonding adheasive that the black creame hardener is "hard".:) I found some replacement but it's like $10 for a small tube. Can I use some of the universal stuff I see advertized? Is a catalyst a catalyst? I've seen universal hardener for poly, glass, ect..

    thanks
    bob

    yup, creme hardener is Benzoyl Peroxide (BOP) its all the same... comes in various colors depending on manufacturer...

    not to be confused with MEKP (Methyl Ethyl Ketone Peroxide), a clear hardener for poly resins...

    Dude, I'm impressed, you really know your sh!t. I've had the same situation had more bondo and no hardner, took a chance and it worked.
    How's the "vista cruiser" coming? Later J.

    Nice work!!! Looks alot different than the other pics. Is that cream colored stuff a seam sealer? Thanks for the pics, I guess nothing is ever to far gone to be restored!

    yup, seam sealer... quickest, reasonable way to go about it.. most of the joints are fully welded and ground, threw a little primer down, then seam sealer....

    this guy always has some work for me.. i do well with his stuff, charge him $30 or 35 an hr cash, depending on what i'm doing for him..

    next week i'm putting in new difs in 2 of his Cutlass's.. both will be a bear.. totally rotted... gonna end up doing all new control arm bushings and stuff...

    but after that i need to start a real job... got a couple of marina's heavily interested in me, just need to decide which one to go for... :doah: :haha:
