Hey, I went to Mobile Dynamics in May 2004, and after finding out that they ARE NOT A NATIONAL ACCREDITED course, thus screwing me over on my tax return, I've decided to share thier "Polycrete" formula for all.
1 part bondo
1 part resin
You will have to mess around with the amount of hardner you mix in because it does change once the bondo is added.
To apply, use the mixture instead of using only resin. Only apply it to a fresh piece of glass/fabric. Once hardened it will be very light and very strong.
Liquid Bone: They didn't tell us how to make this of course, but the one guy told me that it was Polycrete, with another chemical that adds oxygen to the balance, thus making it alot lighter. So if somebody wants to try to figure it out that would be good. It shouldn't be too hard if you've taken a chemistry course, or just simply do some trial and error. They did say it was a common chemical.
Hope this helps some people out!

well..first off, i attended mobile dynamics in july of 2004, once tax time came i was able to write it off and think nothing of it. i've been there done that, and had a deicent tax return last year because of the amount i paid to go there,

as for you shared secret...i already use that, and i magine there's loads of other installers out there on this site that use it as well,  but personally, i wouldn't use bondo, there is better to use then bondo.

Methylene. AKA, phenylisocyanate. Or any of a dozen other trade names. Its the active ingredient in expandable foams.

BTW, did they tell you they were nationally accredited? That would be bad. Otherwise you really should have asked.

LOL, yeah dont worry, im sure they dont own the patent of the mixing of other patented materials.  This mix has been used in the early 1990s when I was working for a pool and amusement construction company, we were constructing concrete halfpipe/waterslides, which the concrete surface was coated with a relative mix you mentioned to provide a smooth hard finish.  Theres several other fiberglassing sites that give exact measurements of this concoction of these materials.  Some give different amounts per part depending on the intended use or location in which the mix is to be applied.  Also, theres an additive that you can add to polyester or epoxy resins as well, such as the thixatripic media referenced from www.CarAudioHelp.com.  If you order the Fiberglass 1 or 2 dvds, they give thier mix portions as well.  Also, some fabricators have used baby powder or talk.

So, they call theirs "Polycrete" eh?  Im going to call mine...."Fiber-Mud" or "Multi-Flow-Filler"......just kiddin'

I am going there now.  They don't say they are "nationally accredited".  They offer MECP national certification.

My mistake, I go to the AZ campus, so I didn't look at the CAN site. But if other people have claimed it on their tax returns, why can't you? I serioulsy doubt that if they were not accredited, that they would post something like that on the site. Did you attend the school just to get the write off? That seems like a pretty dumb idea to me.

Yea im going to same the same as Seth, i just finished class there and they never said that.  I think the closest thing they said is that they were one of the most credited schools for the mecp since they helped with the development
