Of course it's not! It was intended to be a temp fix.I am by no means a bodywork expert. I don't think caking bondo on a rusty panel is a permanent fix. Fixing rust usually requires sanding or grinding down to bare silver/grey metal and then re painting.
So now that winters over, I decided to attack this rust. My goal is to just make it look decent. I'll get around to fixing it for real. I cant drop a G on body work right now.
Good news! My friends dad does body work. He's going to help me re do it for a more serious fix. We're getting fiberglassBondo is pretty temporary any way you look at it...but to do it right you do have to grind away all the rust or its just gonna push the bondo away from the surface, sooner than later
Damn rust lol
I agree! I had intentions to fix it correctly. I just needed a quick fix to temporarily get rid of that eye sore, although this project is taking MUCH longer and my car has been several different colors for almost a month now!Don't take this the wrong way but thank God you ended up redoing the body work the right way. You'll be much happier with the results in the long run and you won't have flaking bond/rust showing through your paint in a year. Are you shaving the moldings on the driver's side or was there just some rust there?
Thanks man. Getting together some supplies to help me get off that paint. And the paint itself, I'm thinking red.I messed up on the lettering. Because I hadn't wrinkled it yet in the oven, I decided that I wanted another coat and put too much on. You can see in the drying pic that it turned out great but after the final coat and heating/bake on the car its messed up.
Easy fix, just can't be bothered with caring about it right now.
