It can be applied to sanded and cured primer or paint. WOW

That's what it says, but I wouldn't do it. I've never considered Bondo brand to be that great a product, but this stuff does sand quite easy.

I use files because it saves time and levels the area better. I have a little trick that I use to get whatever area I'm doing super straight and smooth before I even touch it with sandpaper. I'll have to take some pics and do a little article on it. Show you guys what i mean. It's hard to explain without the pics though.

I use the cheese grater body file. I like the rounded ones, not the flat.

The flat ones seem to cut too deep, and do not work the surface smooth enough. They are clumsey too. When i get the pics taken, you'll see what I mean.

This weekend I'll be shaving the door handle on the 71 Chevy truck I'm working on. It should be a good peice to show this stuff. I'll take lots of pics and hope to have the complete article done soon after.

plastics should go over ruffed up(36-40) it will bite in to the scratched up metal much better.over primer i would use evercoat metal glaze,it sticks,finish it with 220-and prime away,,i also agree that bondo brand sucks,it like trying to sand concrete,any questions feel free to e me , been doing this work to long,bob

evercoat filler is a good product, are you sure they weren't applying a glaze, like the 2 part that evercoat sells. it is very smooth and can be applied over primer, also is very easy to sand, i also use a epoxy primer for finish block sanding. regular filler draws moisture, so i don't use it around window channels, but instead use a resin, which is waterproof.
