Bondo resin and carbon fiber fabric?

Here’s something I’ve been wondering about: can Bondo fiberglass resin be used to wet out carbon fiber fabric, the same way that you’d use a two-part epoxy? I’ve been wanting to play around with making a few things out of carbon fiber, and a local store has a deal on Bondo products this week. I’ve sourced some comparatively inexpensive carbon fiber fabric, but aren’t sure if the two would be compatible.

Thoughts?

This is the exact Bondo product I’m looking at: http://www.princessauto.com/en/detail/bond…
and this the fabric I’m looking at:

Eventually I’d like to try making a carbon fiber roof-top carrier for my car, but for the time being I figured I’d try making a few flat pieces for use in some furniture - like maybe a TV stand. (Carbon fiber flat parts, and square aluminum for the other parts).
