    How do you fill in holes?

    I've got some small holes in my roof, trying to fill them in. Can anyone give me advice on how to do it, what materials I should use?

    Thanks.

    ghetto way= use bondo

    right way= remove surrounding paint and carefully weld shut while controlling heat to prevent the metal from warping

      Hmm... well I want to do it somewhat correct, but I don't have a welder. There are a lot of holes, and I was thinking that welding might end up just warping the roof.

        Welding is going to be the only way to properly fix those. I imagine a just a little bit in each one will take care of it, by someone who is competent in welding.

          I can weld, just haven't actually welded body panels though.

            It just takes a tack weld at a time with cooling in between. Basically you don't want to heat any more then just the tack weld.

              Alright, I welded the holes. And I also welded in a plate for the antenna. There is a slight drop since the 2 surfaces aren't leveled. How would I go about filling that? I know I'm not supposed to just slap bondo on that. I need to put fiberglass?

              What length should I use? Long hairs or short hairs?

                use bondo-glass after you weld. Its a mixture of short strand fiberglass and bondo and it holds up pretty well.

                      So I should use the bondo-glass then use THIS after it all?

                        Yes. Its very thin. Dont use too much, the only reason your using it is to make it look better and easier to paint.
