Seeking Bondo-Like product

Is there a plastic based product that does the same function as bondo? I have a few scuffs/cracks in my bodywork that I want to fill in prior to priming & painting. Is bondo fine? I remember reading somewhere here about 2 months ago that someone wrote about a plastic paste/liquid that solidified as hard as metal. Any help would be great. Thanks!

I've got something to say...It's better to burn up, than to fade away!

Please, call me Burner.

I used a fiberglass repair kit you can get at any autobody shop. Its a 2 part resin and a fiberglass cloth. You dont need the cloth to fill cracks, but you can use it on the back side to reinforce the body panel. It sands well and takes paint great.

So you just use the resin without the cloth?

If you just have cracks then the resin would work but you may want to put some cloth on the backside to reinforce it. I had to use the cloth on mine since I put some pretty big holes in my race plastics. I used the cloth and resin and then covered it over with some bondo, sanded it and painted over it.

just a reminder if you have a crack stop drill it before you apply any bonding agents or resins
