Its been awhile back and cant remember the name of it but when I repaired my front bumper on my camaro I used a product I got from auto body toolmart that was for urethane bumper cover repair. Hope this helps out. I put the orange pearl I sprayed into my first coat of clear coat and then applied to regular clear coats over it. Its more than likely the wrong way to do it but it worked for what I wanted to do.

No it did not have fiberglass in it, it was like a 2 part epoxey type but thicker and was gray in color. Reminded me of jb weld but more expensive.
