Carbon crack filler paste?

I've been trying to get around to repairing a broken frame, and rounding up supplies, a crack filler has turned out to be hard to find (without spending 75.00 for that alone.) I need just a little bit to get the repair areas smooth.
Anyone know of something easily accessible that would work? Things like PC-7 or Carbo Fill?

What are you using for the repair? The logical thing to do would be to use the same stuff you are using,

Epoxy with an added filler to thicken it is typical. West 404 or cabosil/ microballons etc.

Thanks Canaboo! The West products look like a no brainer. They've got stores in ATL too. It will be what I think is pretty normal 2x2 twill cf fabric with epoxy resin.

You might be able to get away with just buying a West repair kit plus a bit of carbon.
