metal glaze question

I have sanded the primer by hand on my project and noticed some spots that where low more specifically where some spot welds are.

Should I use bondo to smooth these out, or can I use the metal glaze since these are just shallow enough to see from the sanding? The metal glaze is EverCoat.

Or is this stricley to be used to fill in the pin holes in bondo?

Thank SC

Bondo

Filling these small imperfections with metal glaze should be just fine. After all it is almost the same product as Bondo, just finer talcum and sands easier. Go for it!

Rule of thumb with most any of Evercoat's finish,glaze,whatever you want to call it putty is,
No thicker than 1/8".
It a great product but it does not have the proper products/qualities for a thick build like Rage or such.

Rage

On a related note.... I just tried my first gallon of "Rage Extreme" I really like it, you can sand it when it is still green and it doesn't flake off at the edges and there is no pinholes. Even if you wait til it is cured it sands really nice...I like it better than Rage Gold...

What's the difference in the two?
I use the Gold, Someone told me the extreme is
thinner, is it more for a finish coat?

Rage Extreme

Naw... it's not thinner, it is a full bodied filler that spreads nice and has no pinholes. I have used Rage Gold for years and I like the Extreme better.... Karl.

Thanks Karl, if I ever use up this gallon I just opened of
the Gold, I'll try the extreme next.
If I would quit working the dents out so well, maybe I would
use it up faster, LOL.
