I don't think the brand is critical. I have used hardware Epoxy cement. Mixed both tubes in an old glass ashtray and added my fiberglass matt until I had the consistency I wanted. Yes, it is sand able but does sand harder than filler. The way I made my strands was to take woven fiberglass cloth. Use a sharp pair of scissors and cut the cloth at a 45% angle in thin strips giving you short 3/8 +- shreds of strand. Once it is cured rough it up with 80 grit and finish with a good body filler.
