I am welding the right quarter on tomorrow. Is All-Metal better than the regular polyester body filler (Bondo) and if so why?

Use layers of Metal2Metal first to smooth the weld and build up the surface even. Then use regular filler over that as a final surfacer. Build the layers and sand each, taking your time and keeping the layers thin.

I used that on the seams of my quarters when I welded mine on. After some research and posts, I was led to believe this was stronger and better than regular filler for the thicker application on the seam.

All-metal or Metal2Metal do not absorb moisture like the bondo type body fillers. As Laurie mentioned, using the metalized filler first then covering it with a thin layer of bondo seems to be the best ticket. The metalized fillers are a bit trickier to beat into submission.
