Bondo or Epoxy?

Which is better for holding things together structurally? Which would give the most support for the thinnest layer of stuff used? Anyone have any thoughts?

Use something like epoxy. Like JB Weld.
JB weld is pretty damn strong, and almost impossible to get off.

It actually would help to know what you're holding together though.

I'm trying to secure a variety of different plastics to each other. A zenith screen case, various PS2 case pieces...both ABS I think

Bondo is a filler, epoxy is an adhesive. Go with epoxy
