Need to repair minor stucco damage along a roof where the shingles were replaced .. how many sq ft does each container size cover?
- Can I use a standard multi-purpose primer to paint over this or do I need a special high adhesion primer? Also, if I apply with a metal putty knife will it be hard to clean the knife after use (what solvent should I use) or am I better off using a disposable plastic knife set?

You can use acetone, xylene or alcohol to clean your putty knife.
I need to level out the surface of a retaining wall to make it smooth and don't trust portland cement or concrete patch to hold up to the elements long term. Can aboweld be used in conjunction with backer rod to fill gaps and smooth out the surface? It will be covered by a mural once completed.
