    Default What filler to use before paint

    I have put together a welding cart. I have ground down a few areas and I will sand them too. Still, a few areas are hard to get at. Do you fill the scratches before painting with a Bondo-like material? Do you use Bondo or something else? It would be nice if a product was available that did not have to be mixed.

    I should clarify that is not the welds I am filling. It is mostly the adjacent steel that gets hit by the grinder.

    If its an 1/8'' thick or less you can use glazing compound. Its a lil easier to work with and more forgiving
