How to use

  1. Surface to be repaired should be clean, dry, unpainted and free from grease or oil.
  2. Dents in steel and aluminium body work can be punched or drilled to give a positive key for Selleys Tradie’s Bog if it is to be subjected to excessive vibration.
  3. Stir Selleys Tradie’s Bog before use. Extrude a 2.5cm length of hardener to every 20g (heaped tablespoon) of bog.
  4. Mix together thoroughly until hardener is evenly dispersed and a uniform colour is achieved. Working time varies between 3 to 8 minutes depending on temperature. For faster cure, or in cold weather, use more hardener.
  5. Apply with a putty knife slightly overfilling to allow for sanding. Where several separate fillings have to be made, use less hardener and take your time. Feather edges for a perfect finish.
  6. Any excess can be smoothed off easily with a Surform file or fine sandpaper before it becomes rock hard (between 20 and 30 minutes). Ordinary files or sandpaper may be used once rock hard (after about 30 minutes). Feather edges for a perfect finish.
  7. Paint with water or oil based paints.
