Zero Rust over Bondo?

My question is has anyone used Zero Rust over bondo? I have a 49' chevy pickup that is mostly bare metal at this point but I had to replace the cab corners and a few other spots which required Bondo and leading is not a skill I have aquired yet. I know Bondo is a sin to some around here but my metal working skills require a little filler now an then. I read up on their web site and I didn't see any info about applying over fillers.
BTW, I have used Zero Rust lots on things like surf rack lumber and various other outside items. I live very close to salty ocean air, and it has worked very well for me. I throw a wet salty surfboard on those racks a few days a week, and after about 3 years they look like the day I sprayed them.

Welcome to the forum

It's very important to seal behind any welds as much as sealing the bondo, I
have never used the product you mentioned thought .
Moisture can infiltrate the bondo from the inside of the panels or patch
more so that from the paint side I think... "correction anyone"

My paint rep recomended zero rust to sael some bodywork (bondo) on a kids truck i'm helping with,its been sitting outside in the rain and snow for about a year.The only place thats rusting is where he didnt get good coverage.The paint rep did say to sand the zero rust and reapply.Let it tack off,then apply primer surfacer,he said primer surfacer doesnt like to stick to zero rust unless its fresh.
