I just picked up the vette panel filler/adhesive for a pretty penny. It is far more than I would ever need or hope to use. I have some home made side scoops in the works and was curious of it could also be used for that, or should i bite the bullet and get something made for RIMM.

It will work on all your SMC panels (hood, top, rear deck), but not so good on RIM. Cracks will show up after a while.

What is the recommended bonding agent/filler for those types of panels?

I used this on my rockers to mold the flares in and it worked very well.
No cracks so far after a number of months on a daily driver.

You take your chances with fillers made for the wrong material. Sometimes, it may work out, others it dont. There no SMC panels on the sides of a Fiero. You buy the correct filler for the material your fixing. If your molding 2 different materials together expect problems more than not. ie/ fiberglass onto RIM or urathane.

I found JB Weld sells an epoxy for auto flexible panel repair that is $6.00 per syringe.
I was able to use it and glass mat to repair a rip in my front fender. It looks very good
and it held up to flexing after it cured. I also repaired a rip in the door skin right at the
corner that goes under the sail panel frame.
It also does a nice job for filling chips in the hood and trunk deck lids.
If you need a large volume of material, the JB Weld would be more expensive, but if
you only have a small job, then you don't have to buy the expensive gun and nozzles.
The color also matched the tan color of the flexible panel.

Thanks guys. I am actually looking for a little more than just an epoxy. I will be of course cutting up the sides and molding in some scoops. That will require some TYPE of bondo type filler for "sculpting", just looking to figure out what would work best.

The vettte panel repair is for the hood roof and trunk lid.

I used 3M Duramix 4247 on the quarters when I made my side scoops.
It is sandable and you can sculpt it with in 10 minutes. Just lay it up close to how you want it for minimal sanding.
Just work fast when your putting things together.

Heres the thread I did for them too.

Body shop supply stores carry fillers made for a range of different plastics each. Those will work when attaching 2 different types together.

If you need sculpting material, styrofoam and 'great stuff' might be what you want.

This is the cheapest i could find for the 3M super fast curing repair adhesive 4247

They should also have other stuff too like you were talking about.
