Default Weight of auto fiberglass

What is the weight rating of the glass you get from the auto parts store for auto body work? Ihave a few sheets of it laying around unopened that I have let over from a ship build.

The stuff that is sold by Bondo is 6 oz [or so]. I've found that 2 layers is good enough for cowls and it turns out light enough for me.
