  3. Definetly fiberglass resin. Mix the bondo and fiberglass resin first, then add your hardner

    You may want add chopped firberglass to the mix to make it much stonger....gary
  6. You can also thin it temporarily (like if you're near the bottom of the can and it's getting a little dried out) with acetone - but of course the acetone will evaporate pretty quick, but it does help make it easier to work with.

    Use resin, not a solvent. The acetone will thin it, but after it cures it will be crummbly. It's a solvent, after all, which degrades the resin.

    Using a little of both hardeners will make the resultant material harden more evenly and much harder.
