Filler on plastics?

Hello! So, I'd really like to know from other people out there and their opinions on this.

I know some guys who tell me body filler is okay on Rigid, non-olefin plastics. Yes, or no? I've never used it, I've always used appropiate 'plastic repair material' on any plastic I've had to repair.

Now, if this is the case, how rigid must a plastic be? I'd imagine it would have to be something like an ABS mirror which is NOT going to bend a signifigant amount without otherwise cracking regardless.


Your thoughts?

Fillers are plastic and will stick and stay on plastic better than they will stick to metal All day everyday for years on end
Of course we need to provide "tooth" roughing with at least 180 grit...

That was their train of thought, body filler is plastic filler, just like designated plastic repair material, just not flexible. Filler okay on Olefins?
