If its made by evercoat You've picked the right brand next all you have to do is find the one that fits your needs (like a puppy) and like a puppy, once you find the right one it'll be with you a long time.
All I can say is I like Z-grip and I've been using it forever (25yrs)
Same with my putty, EZ sand is what works for me also by Evercoat

Best to open the can and see if its goo and clumps or still a regular uniform color.

But yes evercost is still the good stuff. light weight is not a bad idea but best used where its needed. that can be said for all of there products none are really perfect for every application. But most can be used anywhere with good results.

I had some everglass that was only a few years old and it was separated badly. i did mix it back up and use some for a project. It worked but did not seem as easy to work as when it was new. It clumped up more and didnt seem to lay out as well as i remember. If i was going to do another car i would buy a new can. Its almost empty anyway and served its purpose.
You make some valid points Mr compton.This can was last used.."been stored" about 2005 . It looks like you say not dried up,;. I used a small patch of steel in the F-WALL-covered it with this can of evercoat and it worked like it was used yesterday--. jus used new hardener. Bad part is the hardener lays around, Along time- and doesn't seem to change at all..to me.Got the replies i was looking for. thank you much hcompton and dead bodyman happy new year bob s

Heres a little trick for ya when the filler gets old (3months or more).
When you open the can you'll see the filler has separated from the syrup, instead of mixing it up thoroughly you can mix it half way down and get a creamier filler from the top half and a thicker filler from the bottom half.
The can has to be closed up tight after use though not just set the lid on which is what most of us do.
If they sold the syrup we wouldn't need finishing putty at all THATS the expensive stuff at 35.00 a qt

I thought they did sell the "syrup", it's called polyester resin.
I've used the Evercoat for many years, then stumbled upon U-Pol.
I like UPol because it goes on nice and smooth, no pinholes, and works real nice with 80grit. But Evercoat is good stuff, albeit a bit coarser than the UPol.

evercoat rage ultra is good stuff. The Upol stuff spreads nice but it clogs paper. I wouldn't use anything less quality than rage. Cheap filler is more prone to pinholes. Honey works great to a certain degree but if you add in the cost of honey, the paper it clogs, and the cheap filler you're using that causes you to use honey, you could have just gotten a better filler to start with that doesn't need honey. Trust me on this, Rage Ultra is what you want. I'd throw away that light weight can you got, it's junk. no offense, but it just is.

When I prepped the chassis for paint I had part of a can of Rage Gold and a can of Rage Ultra.

The Ultra is far superior to the gold. I was really impressed with it.
