Frame side tag bondo filling?

Anyone bondo in the side of their frame? where the sticker indent it? Maxi/moby/pug? I am just wondering what it looks like all said and done.

Re: Frame side tag bondo filling?

You mean on the tank. Yes, U.B. Harvey did it on a Peugeot. Looks real good too.

Re: Frame side tag bondo filling?

Yeah! That's what I mean! Got any photos?

Re: Frame side tag bondo filling?

No photo but you don't need one. With Bondo your imagination can run wild

Re: Frame side tag bondo filling?

I can help you dude, I did my race pug!

Re: Frame side tag bondo filling?

Oh dang! That does look good! Why didnt you pop out the bearing cups? Did you use an electric sander to smooth it? (edited)

Re: Nice work

Re: Frame side tag bondo filling?

Did something similar, but a raised section. Not exactly what you're looking for, but similar style on a maxi. (edited)

-I wanted to paint the cups on the outside.

I just sanded it by hand, I've got a bunch of autobody sanding blocks and I used a few different grit levels of sandpaper to get it the right shape and texture. It's messy, but you can sand down bondo really fast.

I did on the John Deere 103. Turned out looking real good. Then the frame cracked at the braze joint. Was bummed.

Sick as fuck. How did you do that ?

Re: Frame side tag bondo filling?

I did that before I acquired welding equipment and proper tools and any kind of fabrication clue. I cut the shape from a piece of sheet metal (with a dremel and probably 15 cutoff wheels), hand filed the edges and jb welded that shit on. Correction, I cut 2 pieces of thin sheet for each side, jb welded those together, then filed, then jb'd to the frame. What a rookie. THEN had it powder coated that orange and then painted the pearl over the top. Sounds like the dumbest fucking idea to me now, but a true testament to jb weld nonetheless.

Did the decals in illustrator and had them vinyl cut. I should still have the file of you want it. (edited)

Re: Frame side tag bondo filling?

Tell me more about that seat! Looks vgreat. Did you do it yourself?

I also really like it raised!

Re: Frame side tag bondo filling?

Yeah the seat I did myself. a little sumarry...

- OG seat pan, trimmed foam, post welded straight to pan.

For the cover:

- Made templates from old saddle cover, but they needed a little modification.

- Top sheet is 2 pieces of vinyl with some batting in between. Crosshatches done on a machine.

- Piping is a 1 inch strip of vinyl folded over a piece of wire, glued (maybe?)

- Seams sewed by hand (you're working with 5 layers of vinyl at that point and it completely blows). Plus I've got a c'slist $50 machine that has trouble getting through toilet paper.

- Heat cover with blow dryer, wrap, gorilla glue, clamp, drink beerz.

This one came out better...

Re: Frame side tag bondo filling?

Also, because I just saw your post in another thread, only glue the bottom of the cover after it wraps around the bottom of the pan. I've put spray adhesive over the whole thing before putting the cover on and it doesn't work well. you get wrinkles after it moves around a bit. Sorry for the thread jack, it was kinda requested.
