I'm getting ready to repaint my roof that has some chips and lifts around the windshield seal and the sunroof seal. This thread below makes the case for Evercoat 870 instead of Bondo, b/c the Evercoat is able to bond well with SMC.

Bondo Glass vs Evercoat

In researching Evercoat I found these three products are all recommended for SMC:





Here is one of the affected areas I would like to repair.



I discovered I have a can of unopened Evercoat Rage 105 that I would like to use. Has anyone successfully used the Rage 105? Does anyone know if the 650 or 870 are 'better' in some way for this type of repair? I wouldn't mind saving $50 right now but I don't want to be 'penny wise and pound foolish.'

Rage 105 is not for SMC......but you don't need much, so how about this?

The link there is appreciated but as I mentioned Rage 105 IS recommended for SMC by Evercoat (I should have said 'on their website.') Here is the product summary:

How confusing.

"Rage Gold also contains ZNX-7® for adhesion to galvanized steel and aluminum."

Apparently they figured out an additive that makes the stuff work better, but they are not consistent with their descriptions. Considering the risk of re-doing a paint job, I would look for something that was made for SMC and said so on the label. When you do patch the SMC make sure it is dry as a bone before you start. (should be easy to do in Southern California... )
