Default did you ever notice how much sanding Bondo sucks?

UGH.... i bought a spare grill for the car a while ago and now i've finally gotten around to making a mesh grill out of it. I cut out the center bar entirely, and all ofe the little slat thingys. when i cut out the bar it left some hole in the rim of the grill, so i had to put tin backer and Bondo on them. it really sucks. my sig has said doing bondo for a while now and it'* because i really am taking this long. my dad says im just being a perfectionist but, once i paint all the little messups will shine.
p.*. i'm responsible if this doesnt make sense because i just worked 16hrs and i've been thinking about that stupid bondo all day, if you havent done bondo, dont

Bondo is the bomb yeah I hate it also...
I had an 5.0 mustang gt and the rockers on both sides were rotted out. I used 3 cans of bondo to fill the holes and make it smooth. Then took me 4 hours of sanding just the bondo .,... then I had to sand the primer.... then wet sand the paint GAH!!!!!!!!!!!!
