Plastic welding - Filler???

I have been goofing around with plastic welding....

What are people using as a filler material after welding?? Bondo? Fiberglass?

I used some old bodywork plastic dissolved in MEK. Turns into a plastic 'sludge' but hardens after it dries. Thin PVC may work too. Haven't tried it though.

Not large missing areas just the small valleys and crevices that are left after welding and sanding down.

Or would it be best to fill those with "spare" plastics.

Plastic body filler (Bond-o) works great for filling small areas.

if it is larger areas....get some plastic rods (dependant on what type of plastic you are dealing with) and melt them in to fill up bigger holes.

try to stay minimal with the fillers.
