Eastwood Contour Aluminum Repair Compound 25.3 oz is rated 3.125 out of 5 by 8.
Rated 2 out of 5 by from Don't trust it I along with at least one other customer had problems with the filler not setting up properly. I followed the hardener to filler ratio and 4 hours later it was still a semi hard, sticky, non-sandable mess. I tried to contact Eastwood several times, for over a week, yet never received an answer. If you double the hardener to filler ratio it works, however there is no way of knowing if that will compromise the integrity of the filler. I would NOT recommend this product until issues have been resolved.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Seems to harden fine under the right conditions I decided to purchase this despite the negative reviews as I just replaced the quarter panel on my 1967 Mustang and needed something to fill the lead seam that joins it to the roof panel. I was hesitant to use lead due to its price, health hazards, and skill required to use it, but I'd also heard horror stories of people that tried to fill this seam with fiberglass only to have it shatter a few years down the road after paint. So in the end, I decided to compromise and go with this product instead. All of the reviews stated that it hardens poorly, so after I mixed 10 drops of the hardener into an average-sized amount of filler (the instructions say to add 2% hardener, but how does anyone calculate that??) and applied it to the car, I closed up my garage and let it dry. For three days. In low-humidity conditions. In the Alabama heat. I came back and it'd hardened up just fine. Does it harden in 15 minutes like the can says? No. But it doesn't kick in 30 to 45 seconds after you mix it either, leaving you with plenty of time to get the shape you want. I think that if you have a little time and some patience, it will still work as advertised.

Rated 2 out of 5 by from Works...However... Followed hardener to filler ratio and 12 hours later had to scrape a semi solid mess off my project. Tried again doubling the hardener ratio and filler set after a couple of hours. Once set filler performed as expected, sanded well and edges feathered smoothly. Now I have a half can of filler and no hardener

Rated 3 out of 5 by from So far so good A bit difficult to figure compound to hardener ratio and does seem to take a while to set, no doubt a downer for the pros and those who need to get things done fast. Can't give "full experience" as yet but what I have applied seems to look ok and sands well

Rated 3 out of 5 by from Long Set Time Thoroughly mixed proper amounts as directed and applied to pre prepped clean sheet metal. 6 hours later and still tacky to touch. Now waiting overnight and will check in morning. Looks like good product by may require greater amount of hardener.

Rated 2 out of 5 by from does not harden poorly hardens. even with double and triple the amount of hardner, still risky as to wether it will harden up. Will not use again. I should have looked at the reviews before I purchased
