Elmers exterior wood filler. Best stuff out there, then cover with a good oil base

Zinsser Cover Seal with gold label is my favorite oil-based primer.  I got a feeling it is too volatile for California air standards and probably will be phased out with all of the other stuff that works well.

I second the Bondo.  I rebuilt a rotted window sill with Bondo almost 15 years ago and it is still going strong.

The bondo is fine for rotted area's that need filling or repair, but for dents and light scars..........can't beat Elmers filler. Sand's and smooths out way easier than bondo. Been there done that Clap
