I've been using the West 410 filler for 25 years and it's very similar when mixed to the
Quick Fair, but also very pricey. Quick fair is the gold standard in my opinion, but 410 filler is a close second.

Jamie and Jeff - I don't really think you ought to allow the title of this thread. If I were hosting a service such as yours, I'd at least edit out the here, or scratch the title to something fairer (all puns).

Fairing compound is expensive everywhere.

No reason to allow posters to slam your site.

I don't think he meant to slam the site. He's in the Netherlands, so when he says "here" he doesn't mean BBC.
Jacques already weighed in and didn't have a problem with the question.

Fallguy1000, Thank you very much for taking such good care of my site and reputation!! I thought the same until I read the thread a couple of times and realized the "here" he was referring too was not US!! Again, thank you for being watchful!! I hope you had the chance to talk with John today!! Sorry I missed you when you called earlier!! Jeff
