Paint over filler over bondo over paint over filler and over

Body filler is not designed to exceed 3mm thickness!!!!!
It is not designed in most cases to be applied over paint.
in this case I had to dig through one layer of base clear, filler, base clear candy over silver, filler, some sort of matte black or sealer, more primer and a final layer of filler. The tank is noticeably lighter now . Note to the world: if you repaint your metal parts , take time to strip it . If you are just doing a color change and don't have a repair filler is not needed . The basic rule to me has always been don't add bondo unless you have to.
