No durability problems and the only drawbacks is if not done properly you could see a ghost line where your seam is when there's temperature changes and also there is limited adjustability (hammer&dolly work) that you can do after the cure. Spend the time to fit it properly before bonding the parts! Often times when the car sets in the sun a faint line will appear then dissappear when it cools. There are ways to avoid this though and you should fit the panels so there's some room for a fiberglass reinforced filler over the seam. Also grind the patch panel edge to a knife edge taper and have 1" of overlap for the bondline. Go to Fusor's website for some good technical info. And with a lifetime guarantee it makes sense to use it in many situations.
