We patch the trim, eves to achive even and smoth surface look.The bondo is very hard to use and working with it. We use somthing like Flexpatch that easy to use and work with it. Any ideas?

Ready Patch , very nice product. I like bondo also, but sanding bondo is a bitch. Caulk on nail holes is a no no for me.

Same here. M&H is good, I use automotive rattle can primer on metals first. I have had good sucess on cracked wood using Titebond [Exterior ]II glue ,dry then primer, filler, primer . I also have used elastomeric cpd. where I need flex but you can not sand that. Fixall has also worked well on larger areas, like Durarock Ext., very hard has limestone in it and a bonding agent. Depends on the application. I even add retention with hot dip gal. nails to hold repair sometimes say on a corner.

Never saw that, gonna look into it.
For nail holes and such Fast'NFinal int/ext
works very well, and kind of swells
instead of dimpling.
For bigger stuff and rot....

it's a completely different animal than
Bondo or MinWax.
