    is the fiber glass fixed in with the bondo?
    if there seperate u dont really have to put the glass in.. u may want to put a little in the 2 big side holes.

    but for the top coat u dont want fiberglass.
    1. its a ***** to sand.
    2. u wont get a good finish when u paint it.. u will see the fiberglas stands.

    edit: just looking at the stuff u bought again.. it just looks like fiber glass..
    which will be good and strong for the base but u will still need to get a body filler to put over the top to sand.. fiberglass will be hard to sand on it own.

    did it cure hard? that stuff looks bright white, like you didn't mix any hardener in! Surely you did? But yeah get the normal stuff to put on the top layer. Actually thats hardly anything to fill so I would have just used regular bondo for the whole thing

    not sure if fiber glass have bondo in it but it says "Repairs or Restyle all Metal,Wood,Plastic and Fiberglass Surfaces" and also they have a note behind the can that say "FIBERGLASS RESIN JELLY SHOULD ONLY BE USED FIBERGLASS CLOTH OR MATTING FOR STRENGTH, NOT RECOMMENDED FOR USED WITHOUT FIBERGLASS AS A CLOTHING ALONE.WHEN USED WITH PLASTIC FILM OR RELEASE FILM,THE TOP SURFACE MAYBE SLIGHTLY TACKY" this is why i would like to skip the fiberglass thing,not sure if i would have to do all this for just a small spot to cover,but i'm affraid the bondo filler will crack after a while if i dont use fiberglass first .thanks guys

    Hey,

    The guys gave you the wrong stuff. You need "Bondo Glass". This stuff is in a similar looking can but it says something like Fiberglass Reinforced Bondo. It is basically just bondo with fiberglass in it. Use that stuff
