How to apply body filler (bog) to your car like a pro

Although applying and working body filler is relatively straightforward, there are a number rules that need to be adhered to for you to achieve a high-quality finish that will stand the test of time. Before adding any filler, you should get the metal fairly close. If your bog needs to be 13mm thick, it’s time to re-appraise your panel beating. Some more hammer and dolly work may be required, or a whole new panel. Also, before stripping any paint, run a metal body file or sanding board over the area to show high and low spots. Use a straight edge — such as a steel rule — against the panel to help determine how high and how low these spots are. Low spots should be brought up and high spots tapped down, using either hammer and dolly or a panel slapper, possibly along with some heat shrinking. However, metal finishing is for another article. Once you’re happy and can only see glimpses of daylight between the straight edge and panel, sand the whole area back and key the metal using 36-grit paper. For small repairs, you can bog directly over the bare metal. If the repair is larger, or you’re looking for a longer-lasting job, apply a base coat of epoxy primer before laying on the fill...

Fitting smartphones with two camera sensors around back seems to be the go-to strategy for pretty

Fitting smartphones with two camera sensors around back seems to be the go-to strategy for pretty much every smartphone manufacturer today. Adding oodles of RAM and CPU cores just doesn’t seem attention-grabbing enough anymore. Either that or people are now wise enough to know that numbers aren’t really everything. However, having a companion sensor to the primary one can have tangible benefits, whether it might be for zooming into your subject, gauging depth, getting a wider shot, or simply improving the quality of your photo. The first ZenFone Zoom (Review) from Asus was quite an achievement as it managed to achieve 3x optical zoom from a single sensor while keeping the width of the phone under 12mm. While the camera was indeed pretty good, it was still a hefty phone, amongst its other limitations. Rather than trying to improve on that (which probably would have been a costly affair), Asus is taking the sensible route for its successor in simply adding two sensors, the way Apple did with the iPhone 7 Plus (Review).
