What Body Filler is suitable in the UK?


New Hunter
Virtually all car body fillers are suitable for costuming as they are all used the same for car repairs that need to stand up to the rigours of the road, I used to be a motor Mechanic and in the trade we used P38 because that's all that was available back then (28 years ago) but nowadays they use the cheapest they can find.

The one I use here, in Spain, is made by "Presto". It's a German brand, and it works pretty good. It's the same as "Bondo Gold".


There are also other fillers made by Presto, one is like normal Bondo, a fiberglass based filler, great for filling holes and using as a base for the Gold, but not easily sandable. And the other one is an aluminium based filler, I haven't used it but has aluminium dust in it so it could be really hard for sanding.
