Just thin enough till it will flow a little still, Think wet creamy peanut butter or a little looser than that....Like I said, you can work it down and help get the bubbles out with a straw or thin poker ....

I used those shishkebab sticks to poke in the holes to get the air out.

Thanks to all that responded.
Another question:
It looks like I'll be reusing the same transmission mounts, so I'll be drilling the epoxy repair and installing lag bolts.
How likely is it that the lag bolts will crack the epoxy repair? Is there any give to this stuff?

It might crack if you do not drill pilot holes.
