big ding on the down tube

me again - with a whole ‘nother rescue attempt

i picked up a $30 Origin8 Fix8 frame. Kind of a very low end Taiwan TIG fixed gear frame. I hope Taiwanese.
It was FB advertised with a stuck BB. I opted to take on the challenge. And a stuck seat post.

before I put more sweat into those issues, is this down tube ding of any concern?
When I picked up the frame my first thought was the ding is in an area of tension, so it won’t get worse. And before I repaint, I’ll roll it in wood blocks and bondo.

Any comments- as always-appreciated.

I wouldn't be too worried about this dent. Fill away but do monitor. Andy
