Hopefully they finally fixed it. Bondo brand has been one of the worst brands of fiberglass filler. Might have to try another can if it's re-formulated.

Evercoat seems to be the most popular right now. They have a half dozen or so different ones. Bondo is a very old brand, maybe the first. Some people love the newer formulations of Bondo some are not so happy.

I have used Bondo since the early 70s I loved it and the smell was Ummmmy. I knew they did something and I had a mess with the new stuff to little excelerator.This is my last restoration,to many miles on my odometer.

lot of changes to the fillers over the past years. currently we are using 3m platinum plus filler, p/n 01131. it is an easy sanding filler, and doesnt pin hole like the old fillers did. also, with the thin metals on the new vehicles, it does not heat up so much when it cures. the old fillers got so hot they would warp the new sheet metal. with the old fillers, you used 36 grit as your first paper, the 3m stuff you use 80 grit as your initial.
