I have to echo Sam's comments regarding Superfil.  I started with Expancel 
and West Systems Epoxy and while it is cheap, the effort of mixing the stuff 
up and trying to get a good batch to batch consistency is just not worth it. 
I also got a bunch more pins holes with Expancel.

The other problem I had was with moisture ingress.  I had to repaint the 
side of my aircraft where I had used it due to moisture finding its way in 
and then finding its way back out again when it was baked after painting.  I 
didn't have any such problems with Superfil.  Yep, its more expensive, but 
in my experience it wasn't worth the effort.

Just my 2 cents worth.
