Question Repairing fiberglass fuse- Bondo??

I have a fiberglass fuse I am restoring. I've sanded all the paint off, this is where I am at.
The fuse has dings and whatnot and uneven spots from previous repairs.
Is Bondo OK to use as a filler in the voids then sand it down to even out the surface and make it smooth once again?
WIll it stick to fiberglass ok? Is it flexible enough?

Thanks

I always use Z-Poxy Finishing Resin and micro-balloons. Dan.

A much better solution. Bondo is heavy!

Noted!!!! Thanks!

Only concern is if the fuse is polyester or not...will it make a difference?
Thanks,

No problem. Epoxy will stick to poly, just not the other way around.
