Question Question on thick/thin filler - RV-10 Interior

I am just about ready to start filling on my RV-10 canopy cover.

It is an early kit (2005) and the finish can be described as "somewhat crappy"

I need to add a lot of filler, ranging from a skim coat to perhaps 1/4 + inch thick over most of the forward canopy cover. The rear portion will be taken care of with an Aerosport o/h console and the rear trim around the rear windows.

What filler would be recommended for that application?
