Just looking at it I was amazed how smooth and without sanding lines it is. The fact it isn't some soft form of putty... but actual plastic, makes sense. My guess is that it's also strong, important where a joint may crack from sanding too hard. If you haven't done a tutorial yet, it might be a neat trick to teach.
I'm puzzled that the "pro-weld: doesn't soften and distort the spots where the goop is applied. When I built I learned the hard way that even a bit of extra glue could soften the other side of plastic causing a dimple. We had to use glue sparingly. Thanx for your new technique!

I never cry while hacking plastic :o)
Looking forward to the build.

I learned that trick from Bob Paeth and still use it. I buy straight MEK at Ace Hardware less than 12 bucks a quart I use it to make putty and build. Great stuff. I know a couple guys that make their putty with Testor's Liquid Cement. This is going to be a fine looking Merc.

I should do one, it's an easy trick, you can also use the orange testors tube glue, but it takes a while to set up (cure),just put a dab on a piece of plastic, and add powder'd plastic, mix real good and apply, let set, sand, takes a lil longer, but works the same, as it will melt the powder, therby making a bondo like gell,

It does dimple, but it dimples the plastic, I add the shaved plastic, then dip the Pro Wield to the pile, it would go easyer if I powdered the shaved plastic, I just find this way to be a lil more, hmmmm, workable?,

I learned this trick as a kid building, when all I used was tube glue, it kept melting the plastic, right to much glue in one spot, well to fill the sink hole,I created, I would add plastic, then glue it in the sink, then started using less glue, and more plastic,found I could use this as a filler, and made the 2 joining ends stronger.

Looks as if it worked just perfect, to me, now on to the sides, lose the drip rail, finish the kustom tail lights, and find something to cover the top.

I would like to go with something from the ara, but with like a deep crimson, and either a gray top, with white and gray tuck-n-roll, in velvet of course, lol, no not the top, or crimson metal flake, with some home made kandy, and all white interior, or all grey, as I don't have and white velvet, but I do kno it will be a crimson, maybe with a blue kandy metal flake, dusting, to kinda give a shimmer of purple, lot's of options,
