    Neither, use dec caulk it's flexible, quicker and easier to apply.

    Or use car filler, dries quick and sand down well.

    I always use 2part polyester filler. The sort thats used for bodywork
    As said, it dries very quick, fairly crack resisitant, and sand down easily.

    Got a nice smell too ;)

    Be a real struggle to fill tiny gaps in joints as requested.
