Now, Alex is applying the final coat of body filler. It's...the activity of applying this coat is very similar to applying the other coats of body filler, but you can see he's being very careful to spread it very evenly and very smoothly. This body filler is kind of soft and chalky. If you spread it unevenly, when you go to block sand it out, you'll end up digging away at the original layer of body filler. This body filler should be very thin. You are just filling sanding scratches, minor imperfections, and pin holes. You are going to sand this layer of body filler with a finer paper, and you'll want to make sure that you don't have really thick spots in some areas and thin spots in others; you'll just cause yourself a real shaping problem.
