Metal 2 Metal

--------------------------------------------------------------------------------
Anyone used metal 2 metal body filler? Ive wanted to use it on my charger but my auto body teachers (formerly worked for numerous body shops) warned me about it falling off/cracking off esp under sun heat. It kinda makes sense since its fiberglass reinforced/based on fiberglass and fiberglass doesnt like to stick to metal. Im afraid if I used it on my car it would come off few years later on when Ive got my car all nicely painted.

Have use a couple of times over the years, maybe a total of a quart myself and have never seen a problem.

I know some shops that use it by gallons and never herd of problems.

If it cracked, it was thick!

Metal to metal is fine filler, should cause no problems. It gets a lot harder than normal filler but sticks very well to roughed up, clean surfaces. Its main claim to fame is that it has such finely ground solids it feathers out to an infinite edge whereas normal fillers seem to always have a noticeable edge where they end and the metal starts. No problem, a quick shot of filling primer will level out all fillers. Of course the key to proper use of any filler is the thinner the better. Anything over 1/16" and you aren't doing good preparation.
