I never used the metal 2 metal brand, but a place I worked used all metal filler on the aluminum parts they fabricated. The stuff will set up like a rock and be hard to sand if you wait awhile. Also seemed to get quite a few pinholes to be filled. Its pricey when compared to standard plastic filler. It does seem to have more fill to it though. I was always under the impression that it was good to use first on an area you may have a possible pinhole or something much like fiberglass filler because it didn't absorb water, but after reading the other comments on it, I am now not so sure. Plastic fillers get a bad rap because so many people misuse them, but they are a good product if used correctly. If you do hack work and trowel it on an inch thick and fill holes with it, it won't last or can crack, if used correctly it will last a long time.
