My tech instructor didn't like the name or word BONDO being casually exchanged for the more acturate; PLASTIC FILLER.

The can looks familiar as I used that stuff to replace the hood trim on my 51 as well as the hood marque.

At one point, I was collecting vintage Autobody and the Reconditioned Car magazine from the late 30s to the 80s. It is interesting to see the move from lead to plastic filler over the years....and then the evolution of plastic fillers themselves.

But plastic filler buggy doesn’t sound as good as Bondo buggy.
