Contour Light Weight Short Strand Body Filler 3L is rated 4.5 out of 5 by 4.
Rated 4 out of 5 by from Good but fades fast I've used this product on a few cars now and I have a love/hate relationship but will buy again unless I find better. It works great, mixes well, goes on good, shapes very easy, and the sanding of it is spot on. It does have a tendency to clog sandpaper when you initially start sanding, regardless the cure time. My reason for the hate part is that the unused portion doesn't last long at all. It comes in a large container and starts to clump and get small clump particles all through it after about 3-4 weeks from the initially opening. Then it becomes a pain to work with, really hard to get a uniform layer with lines due to dragging clumps, and eventually frustrates you to the point of just tossing it. My advice: Eastwood needs to sell this in smaller quantities too. I have a hard time justifying $50 on a product that I'm going to toss probably half or more. I do one car at a time and don't come close to using it all before it starts to clump and become unusable. Quart size would seem perfect for the average user.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Strong and easy to sand It is very easy to mix, spread and sand (80 grits). It is also very strong. I also tested directly on a fiberglass mat and got a very good solid result.

I have several screw holes 1/4 " in my fenders, is this product acceptable for patching? 

Asked by: Barretta
You do not want to place body filler over an unsupported hole. It should be filled with a welder first or our No weld hole repair kit to give a backer.

I have a rusted area on a floor panel that isn't bad enough to replace.  I have treated the area with Ospho.  Will this product work over Ospho treated rusty metal?

You should clean the surface first with PRE Painting Prep, and then you can apply the filler over it.
