    I would say that it's to weak, as for the little holes that it leaves you can use glazing putty, spackling putty, or even wood filler.

    Hope that helps.

    How thick are you laying it on? Bondo cracks when it gets thick, put it on in layers of about 1/4th inch at MOST.

    Yes but it will also crack if it's to thin.

    Oh, don't do a different mix ratio thats not the problem.
