Polyester putty test of sorts

I had this "pallet" that I used awhile back with some Evercoat Easy Sand filler left on and decided to do some "Testing" with it.
It's just gal. sheetmetal cleaned with acetone and has no scratches/sanding done to it.

This is the panel to start with.

This is how far I was able to bend it before cracking occured.

This is an actual piece that cracked off and as you can see, the thinner end,as this was a edge piece that got thicker left to right,is considerably flexable.

As you can see, It did break but only up into the thicker area.

Thought you guy's might be interested.

That easy sand finishing putty is some good stuff IMO. For awhile all I used was the metal glaze but now I only use the easy sand. I've tried Upol's Dolphin Glaze, 3M's Pirahana Putty, one made by USC and a few other no name brands, but I always come back to Evercoat. I never realized how flexible the stuff was, interesting.
