I don't think they do. At least I haven't been able to get a good bond. Someone like Fernando (quest???) could help out with what to use. He does custom stereo installs and works with that stuff.

If your going to just use bondo, you have to use FIBER bondo, the green stuff, it will attach pretty good...

IF your prep it right it will stick to anything...

Well not anything but you get the idea..
