I'm not a bondo expert by any means, but what has helped me is working using many small batches. Like the size of a golf ball or so gives you enough time to lay it up how you want. Then by the time you get it shaped, clean your tools, and mix the next golf ball sized batch the previous one is set up enough to lay some more.

Good thread, I'm going to keep my eye on this thread. Also in thumpers in case you missed it is a great thread by jesusgatos. The dude really knows his shit when it comes to fabricating.
