Of course on metal is fine.
But on wood.
Have you had any problem with bondo wood? I hear does not like flexing alot.

Bondo has a line for metal and another line for wood. I have the wood line and have not had a problem with it.

We have used regular car bondo on wood with no problems. Your car does a lot of flexing so if it dopesn't flex, it would crack going form summer to winter or from the shade to the sun.

Patch & Paint Holes in Aluminum Siding


Bought a house that had an old rusty basketball hoop mounted above the garage. After removing it i had 4 lag bolt holes in the aluminum siding. Considered silicone, but would've been an eye sore. If I would've trimmed the silicone flush it wouldn't have provided a good enough seal since the aluminum is to thin. Went with bondo. Great decision. First time I've ever used it. Bought the regular automotive stuff from local hardware store. Applied as instructed, sanded, painted and now you cant even notice the blemishes. And the holes are well sealed.
