I've been using UPol (its in a gold/brown & black tin, I THINK its Easy Sand) and I've just run out. There are numerous small dents all over my Ranchero and a lot of repaired areas that need a skim of filler. As all repairs are butt-welded theres nothing needing more than around 2mm of filler. On American Hot Rod I've seen them using a very thin/runny filler that they practically cover the entire car in & then board-sand most of it off, I could do with something similar. Easy to sand and easy to spread thinnly with no air bubbles.

Anyone recommend anything?

Upol topstop is my preferred choice, to get the panels really straight you could use polyester spray filler after all the inital dent filling, this depends on how much you like rubbing filler though as you will flat the whole panel rather than small area's.

I use to use plastic padding elastic as it is very flexible even bends when trying to get off the plastic scraper ,ideal for fibreglass cars.
